Issue with Sitemap – Critical Error

Hi, I could using some help diagnosing an issue I’m having with my site. I have Yoast setup and configured, but when I visit my page-sitemap.xml I’m getting a critical error message. All other sitemap areas are working fine, as is the rest of the website.

I downloaded the helper and attempted to reset the indexable tables but I receive a server error that:

WordPress database error Table ‘wp_yoast_prominent_words’ doesn’t exist for query TRUNCATE TABLE wp_yoast_prominent_words made by do_action(‘admin_post_wordpress-seo-feature-reset’)

I disable all plugins which had no effect, but changing my theme seemed to fix the issue. As a result I’m trying to understand what the conflict might be, or at least where to look to start troubleshooting the issue.

Thanks in advance for your help.
