Have some sort of this experience in the past from upgrading the 2003 to 2008 for EPO older version as the dependencies such as NtLmSsp service is missing in 2008. The means to resolve is to go into registry to remove the dependency entry for this missing service e.g. inside the DependOnService entry of below remove 'NtLmSsp'

Also to note Event Parser can't start unless the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator 4.6.4 Server service is running. You may end up backing up the database and re-installing with a clean copy of ePO 4.6.4 then copying over the database files/a few select server files to get it resolved but of course the root cause is left unknown and for further investigation (seeing the error log e.g. in <epo install folder>\apache2\logs)

You may want to catch this below for steps (even McAfee is investigating) for considerations but better to get the support in the loop to stand guided

McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator 4.6.6 or 4.6.7 Server service fails to start after upgrading from an earlier version @ https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB78566
The Local Event Parser service is not running (seen on the ePO 4.6 logon screen) @ https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB71568
