    I would ask you how you compressed the file, what tool did you use and what OS. For example, it may be that X product on Windows does not create the .gz file format that is expected. – closetnoc Jul 1 '15 at 15:17

Looks like your sitemap within the sitemap is damaged or not a gzip as it fails 2/3 of my tests.

Test 1/3: winrar - No errors found during test operation

Test 2/3: tar

bybe@ubuntu:~$ tar -tzf test.gz > /dev/null
bybe@ubuntu:~$ tar -tzf sitemapCP38.xml.gz > /dev/null
tar: This does not look like a tar archive
tar: Skipping to next header
tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors

Test 3/3: gunzip

bybe@ubuntu:~$ gunzip -c sitemapCP38.xml.gz | tar t > /dev/null
tar: This does not look like a tar archive
tar: Skipping to next header
tar: Exiting with failure status due to previous errors
