Problems with Google sitemap

I am getting a message in Google Webmaster tools which I do not understand.
It is in connection with the sitemap.xml

It is this:
      
Errors
      
Nested indexing
      
This Sitemap Index is referenced by another Sitemap Index.
      
I ran a test.  That seems ok.
I refreshed the sitemap.   That seemed ok.
But I still get this message and I do not know what to do about it.
Can you help please.

It means you are referencing another sitemap in your sitemap, you should submit them as separate sitemaps
