For Error 1:

Error says you can not use System Account for app deployment. use other account for app deployment. Or you can change the service account from Central Admin for this web application and try to deploy using same login account.


For Error 2:

This type of error can occur when Uninstall is not done properly. Delete the app from Site Contents and Recycle bin completely.

Please change the product id from the appmanifest.xml file. It's random GUID. Generate new GUID and change it in appmanifest file. After that try to deploy your app. If issue persists, then also change version number along with GUID in appmanifest file.


Hope this will help you!
