Still shows categories as errors after changing to taxonomy approved

After battling with my host provider, there was nothing left to do but change my website categories to the ones google taxonomy wants. After all that, I still got the same error messages using the words they provided.  I am unable to manually change the data feed and am not sure what the problem is now. Screen Shot 2015-06-26 at 5.18.42 PM.png

a google_product_category value must
be submitted exactly as google defines.
e.g.
Apparel & Accessories > Jewelry > Necklaces

for jewelry, the (other) apparel rules
and policies must also be followed,
since such items fall under that category --

e.g. the color attribute with a proper value is also required.
