Have you got any soot build up in the area around the corner where it's been leaking? Have to say your EGR does look very clean.
I too had a problem with stripped threads, the manifold can't stand repeated removal of the EGR. Where did that spring come from?
The error you're getting is because gases are not being sufficiently passed into the manifold, as a result the MAP doesn't detect the pressure change and caused the error.
An option is to remap the ECU so that the EGR can be blanked, however you'll still have to sort out that stripped thread.
Loose - not close, compact, or tight in structure or arrangement
Lose - to part with or come to be without, as through theft, accident, negligence, etc.
