comment How can older devices be deleted from Google Play?
Try. The only place were you could do so is on the Dashboard in the web. I didn't see they've added an option there to remove a device, but I might just have missed it.

comment Getting Android error message “App not installed”
Without root access, that's not that easy to track down. Do you have ADB available from your computer? What OS are you using there? Though you've already ruled that out ("they are all new"), to me it sounds there's an "old installation" in the way and might need to be cleaned up.

comment How safe is it to use Aptoide?
I won't argue with you. I had close contact with Paulo for a while, and I've observed Aptoide for about a year now. They have their own repo with almost 50.000 apps currently, which definitely is clean – and offer everybody to open and maintain his/her own repo, where they cannot vouch for the content. You can report "ilk", and it gets removed – but they don't "go hunting" themselves. // As thieves and Mafiosi use bank accounts, I recommend you stay clear of banks as well – as bank clerks also only check if being told so (sorry, couldn't resist ;) Don't throw the baby out with the bathwater ;)

That was "Option 3" from my last update – thanks for confirmation, @OstapAndrusiv!

comment How safe is it to use Aptoide?
You must know. So please name me only 3 "pirate apps" in Aptoide's "Apps" store (note: the Apps store, which is their main and curated repository – not one of the many "private repositories", where you in fact find many "pirated" apps. (Why three? Once is an accident. Twice is coincidence. Three times is an enemy action. Meaning: One might have "slipped through" – that happens on Google Play often enough as well, without you calling that place a "pirate bay"). No accusation without proof, please.

comment Set up a host to IP mapping in unrooted Android 4.4 tablet
DNS Server is supposed to serve other devices in your network (as the description says, you additionally need to use port-forwarding for that). That always requires those devices (including your Android device) are configured to use it. I didn't use any such DNS server on my Android devices, so I didn't check what exactly needs to be done here; but most likely you need to adjust the DNS entries in your network settings (long-press the WiFi network's entry, chose "Advanced", and adjust the first DNS entry – leave the second as-is for a "backup").

You should not write something you cannot back up by sources. What you write is like saying "Windows always has viruses", "computer users are hackers", and the like. Have you even read the answer of user64756? There's a curated repository, and there are "private repositories". What comes to the first is controlled by staff – which cannot necessarily said for the latter.

comment Are GPS coordinates determined via data transfer?
You must distinguish between "GPS location" and "network location" here (and probably also cell-based location, depending on implementation). If e.g. GPS cannot get a lock, and you have the others turned off, you might be "left without position", so to speak. Check the question Andrew marked already (and its answers), it's explained pretty well there.

That looks like an XY problem: what you really want is not a factory-reset, but passing by that lock, right? So I've just added the locked-out tag to your question; in its tag-wiki you can find some first-aid and links to useful related questions (I know your issue is solved by the accepted answer, so count this a hint for others coming across your post).
