You might consider setting up a redirect for the old URL to the new one or change the new one back to the old...

You need a 404 redirect. redirect the old page to the new one so google is not confused. Here is a video training on how you can do that. Laura

Laura, the tutorial explained error 404 when we are in the website. All the changes I made to the pages, I linked them properly and they have no issue when I am navigating within the website. My problem is with the Google search bar, not in the website itself.

after you redirected you need to submit a new sitemap to google console. when google crawls the new sitemap it should fix it in the google search bar.

That is if I am understanding you correctly.
