YES THIS IS EXACTLY WHY! Thank you so much you fixed our problem. Shopify really love the service but while Google is imperfect I really think this is a huge miss on Shopify's part to either removed the blog post sitemap entry from the parent site map xml when a blog does not exist or generate a hidden blank placeholder to avoid the GSC error from happening. Especially considering that this is such a common problem that soooo many users are experiencing. You all def dropped the ball on identifying the underlying cause and keep giving customers the run around on this support site about how to actually properly fix it. Thank goodness some users have found out the truth and shared it. This is the 1 billionth support entry I have come across and finally found the correct answer. Please update your code Shopify to help people not lose their minds when the find that google cannot read their sites just because of a null blog....

Hello, thanks for the info. @Oxford san "Upload an HTML file to your root directory" What do you mean by this? make a new custom HTML file inside of the shopify browser code edit console? And if so what code should go in here and where should this HTML file be saved? under sections? Also our sites sitemap keeps failing. We aren't even using any apps. Don't understand why default things are not automatically working in google webmaster.... so frustrating.
