Optimization issues after moving the website to a new host

If you notice that you cannot optimize older images on your website and you recently changed your hosting then it is likely that the problem is related to file permissions and/or ownership.

Sometimes, if you change your hosting provider or server, even if standard permissions are kept intact, the ownership changes and that's why the files cannot be overwritten. The solution usually is to ask your hosting provider to verify and fix ownership and also verify permissions, they need to be 755 for the /wp-content/uploads/ folder and its sub-folders.
