Wrong Canonical url link

Question

I have a weird problem.

I have a page that changed URL (because it’s parent changed name).

Example
Link
https:www.mysite.com/my-services/service-1

is now:
https:www.mysite.com/services/service-1

the canonical url however is still the original one:
https:www.mysite.com/my-services/service-1

which is wrong. (it should be the new link)

This is what I tried:

  • I had the redirection plugin to handle the redirect, but have switched that one iff > does not solve the problem

  • I have switched of Yoast > doesn’t help

  • I switched on Yoast again – and explicitely changed the canonical link in the Yoast SEO section of th page > that solves it.

However I don’t want to manually have to change a canonical like this. Is there a better solution? Am I missing something? Can I regenerate canonical tags in batch?
So many questions – is there someone with an answer?

Thanks a lot in advance,
Ingrid
