If you are able to obtain a valid html as long as the .tex-file does not 
use biblatex, this is already a good starting point.

You find the miktex roots in the MikTex Options tool (you have to put a 
checkmark on "Show MikTeX-maintained root directories"). The directory 
where you find the *.4ht-files (of which you have to update 
biblatex.4ht) is a subdirectory of one of these, typically in ...\MiKTeX

If you are really able to produce html with this package deinstalled, it 
might be that you are then using the htlatex-version of a previous 
miktex-installation which might still be in your search path.

> Why does the Miktex-package manager not install this package correctly?

This is indeed a pity.

Best regards
