These are not issues, they are just suggestions of things that the machine couldn't not verify are good. As long as a human can verify that this is accessible you can just ignore these warnings.

The first message "Link text may not be meaningful." means that the text inside the link should be meaningful even out of context. This message is in place because some people put text like "click here" and "this website" which are meaningless without more context. If you think your link text is meaningful then you can ignore this message.

The second message "Anchor text may not identify the link destination." is shown when none of the words of the link text are found in the URL of the link. The computer thinks that this might indicate that the link text does not describe the page that you are linking to, however if you know for sure that the link text describes the target page then you can just ignore this message as well.
