Error with xml sitemap

notice from plugin Warm-cache: Your configured sitemap url ( http://www.mydomainname.com/sitemap_index.xml ) is configured, but does not appear to contain an xml opening tag, or a combination of urlset or sitemap, I cannot crawl your pages. Please check your sitemap plugin to fix your currupt sitemap.

The sitemap is good. I am using WP 4.42 and the most recent warm cache revision. Do you have a solution?

    I am getting the exact same thing.

    I tried deactivating it,and activate it again to see if it made any difference…it did not.

    I deleted it,and made sure nothing was left behind after deleting it,but upon installing it again,I got the same message.

    I am using Yoast,and it seems to be working ok.

    The first time that I installed it and got the message,I manually typed the sitemap into Warm Cache,and it created the key.

    I contacted my hosting support,and they set the Cron Job up for me,which has been working.

    I too, am using WP 4.4.2 as well as the most recent warm cache revision.

    Upon re-installing it,I got the warning message,even before doing anything!I then manually entered the sitemap,and it created exactly the same key/url as before.

    Any idea why I keep getting the warning message,that I cannot get rid of?

    Here is the warning message that will not go away,even if I deactivate,and delete the plugin,and then re-install it.

    A notice from plugin Warm-cache: Your configured sitemap url ( http://www.xxxxxxxxxxx.com /sitemap_index.xml )**** is configured, but does not appear to contain an xml opening tag, or a combination of urlset or sitemap, I cannot crawl your pages. Please check your sitemap plugin to fix your currupt sitemap.
    Note: this check will be cached for 2 minutes. So if you fix the problem, this notice might still be present for 2 minutes.

    Error detail: No xml opening tag

    NOTE:**** xxxxxxxxxxx denotes where my domain name would actually be displayed as in the original warning message.

    The site is still being developed,and I do not want to display it on a publicly accessible site.
