I finally pushed a staging site live, so I submitted a new site map. 

I received the following error:

"General HTTP error: 404 not found

HTTP Error: 404"

I do have a 404 page established. Any suggestions on what to do to resolve this error?

Thank you,

Stacy

This error message means it is looking for a page but can't find it.  When do you see this error?

I see the error on the Webmaster Tools after submitting the sitemap. 

The following information is listed:

Type: ?

Processed: Pending

Issues: 1 error

The message is displayed when I click on the "1 error"

Problem solved! I had tried to generate the sitemap with the plugins Yoast and Google XML Sitemaps - both generated the same error.

I tried a different plugin, and was able to submit the sitemap without any trouble.
