    YoastSEO has a built-in XML Sitemap function. If you need to, resubmitting the XML sitemap to Google Webmaster Tools should help.

    Yes as the user above said use the inbuilt one from Yoast. Check the settings in the Yoast SEO plugin and it will give you the new url for the site map to be submitted to your G Webmaster Portal.

    First thanks for quick reply...
    i have stopped that old plugin and active yoast sitemap... but on the main sitemap address it is showing 4 more parent sitemaps..... will i need to submit each parent sitemap separately... or just the main sitemap URL (Which contain parent sitemap links)?

    Just the main one. Google will add them all but there is no harm in adding them yourself. I have also used the crawl button on the left side and added the new sitemap url for Google to crawl for faster indexing.

    You just need to submit the main sitemap, sitemap_index.xml. Google will then process all the inner XML files :)
