Looks like old wallpaper paste. Did you sugar soap before painting?

Old wallpaper paste can be a real pig to get rid of.

Wash down with sugar soap and hot water (as hot as you can stand) and scrape off anything that comes to the surface. Rinse and Repeat.

repeat as many times as necessary to get rid of all paste residue.

Alternative take the easier route... give it a coat of Zinsser Gardz. more expensive than elbow grease buuutt aa real time saver.

I thought sanding it would have got rid of all old paste?

Just get it well wet ... large sponge + water sprayer or similar. As you are wetting the surface and you move along, keep the starting point wet. Once you got it soaking for 15-30 minutes scrape to remove paint and paste residue ... if it has paste left it will feel slimy/slippery to you finger tips. When it is not slippery any more, rinse it using lots of clean water.
Scotchbrite pads can be very handy for rubbing it clean.

Yes, perhaps, maybe ... but looking at the photo(s) you posted [are they both the same] there are layers of paint or paste there that your sanding has not touched.

EDIT. Do you have any photos of the bubbling paint?

Wall paper paste ... elbow grease is the order of the day. Even if you were to use Gartz as suggested by wine~o you would still need to put a lot of work into turning that in a smooth surface. Hot water, sugar soap and do not skimp on the effort needed.
