    1) I resolved my issue by updating domain settings to include www in the url.
    or
    2) Sitemaps need to be XML.
    You could use a generator to create a sitemap
    Or a plugin, if you are using WordPress or some other CMS

    That happens from time to time and is an issue in Google Webmaster Tools. Try to resubmit your sitemap and wait, normally it goes away after some time.
