Hey there
I believe you need to uninstall the previous version of the apk then reinstall (adb uninstall my.apk). As a pre processor directive, I usually do this before starting things up

I already Uninstalled previous apk and apps but still showing same error

Hmm…something’s not adding up then. If you can provide these below that would help

  1. A gist of your appium logs Using github’s gist feature for easier reading
  2. Your current desired capabilities.
  3. A brief description of how you start your session. Are you doing any tasks before starting appium.

Thanks in advance!
