Most likely you use those cogs the most and have worn down the sides of the teeth to create bigger gaps which don’t lock in well with the spacing on the new chain. Most likely you need a new cassette but occasionally I have been able to endure this for a few rides until everything syncs up again. Although this works best when the skipping gear is not used as often and risks you may wear your chain quickly in which case you may need to replace that along with the cassette.
