Can Buddha exist and subject to death?


Can Buddha exist and subject to death?

The popular Buddhist history states something like:
1. Buddha was a man who attained enlightenment.
2. He spent (existed) 45 years of his life preaching Dhamma.
3. At the age of 81, Buddha died.

Paticca-samuppada-vibhanga Sutta states:
Ignorance causes existence and subject to Decay, Death, Sorrow, Lamentation, Pain, Grief, and Despair.

Can Buddha (Awakened/ full enlightened) exist and subject to death?

Why contradictions in the popular shadow/projected story as Buddhism?

Why not study Buddhism as it is (abstract form has no contradictions)?

Additional Details

@Fake Genius,
I think, you's answer does not directly address the question.
Every moment birth & death occur. Existence is a series of births & deaths.
How can Buddha continue to exist (subject to birth & death) for 45 years?
