How to fix the MobileFormFactor Outlook Add-In manifest issue?

I need help.
I am trying to follow the MS examples for Outlook Add-In development. The examples without the MobileFormFactor are working fine. As soon I add the MobileFormFactor element, the manifest file becomes invalid.

I am trying to upload the deploy add-in on MS admin to use it on mobile. On validated I am getting the manifest file is invalid.

The example from MS:

https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/office/dev/add-ins/outlook/mobile-log-appointments?tabs=taskpane

I am using node ver 18.16.0

My manifest file is:
