    Sounds to me you have duplicate pages with the wrong canonical url specified.

    What url is semrush saying is in the sitemap with a wrong canonical url ?
    If you have never failed in your life, you have never achieved anything Noteworthy !

    Ok, I see your problem.

    Yes all of your pages are showing a canonical url to the home page. This is "wrong", very "wrong". Each page should have it's own canonical, and in most cases it should be self-referencing.

    Yes you need to change all of them to the proper url.

    Out of curiosity, why do you have your site, which is obviously German, hosted on a server in Instanbul ? You do know that you should be on a server located in Germany. It will make a little bit of difference in your ranking.
