    The simple solution is to change the title and description for those two pages.

    The second one isn't an XML sitemap. Delete the file and one of your problems will go away,

    The other issue is the site itself. It's riddled with poor code, content and navigation.

    The site page sales tracker must remain while the duplicate sales tracker sitemap must be remove of you to have a unique page.

    The simple solution is to change custom title and description for those two pages.

    Why don't you change a duplicate title or description when you already found this.

    This problem rise in Blogs when your tags and categories URL Indexed if This Problem rise in Blogs then you can Block all the tags and Category directory using the robots.txt file. If You don't want to block the URLs then you need to change all the title and meta description.

    If Your website is Non-Blog or Service Website then surely your Title and Description will match with other Title and Meta Description. So here also you need to change them
