Sitemap could not be read on my website
All Replies (3)
Frankly it's mostly like  bug. The new console sometimes shows 'Pending' as 'couldnt fetch' incorrectly
Alas there is no real way (that I know of!) to tell between them.
But can try using the URL Inspection on the sitemap url. it SHOULD say not indexed (it's a sitemap not a page, so shouldn't be indexed!), but can use the Live Test, to check if Googlebot CAN fetch it!
Again as its a sitemap, NOT a page, DON'T use the 'Request Indexing' button!
If Google can fetch it, it's most likely just Pending, which case just wait.

You've already added the sitemap, that is not a problem. 
Providing you HAVE checked there isnt really an issue with reading the sitemap, then its just a case of waiting. 
... if there is a problem with the sitemap (or at least the path you submitted) then will need to fix that!
The bug has been there for over a year, Google are in no hurry to fix it.
