Can you give some details? What's your website URL? What page is showing up in the sitemap?

I have the same issue.

For my case, I'm using a web template that has a few sample blog posts automatically created. I moved these blog pages to the 'Not Linked' section, not knowing that those pages would still technically be available from an SEO perspective. After knowing that these pages are actually published, just not in navigation, I deleted them. 

But even after doing so, GSC still shows these pages as 404 errors.

@CornCorn if you have these pages linked anywhere they may show up in GSC, if you want to hasten then not appearing then you may want to re-submit the sitemap and reindex manually on GSC. Then wait a couple of weeks.
