Its better format your phone before you flash the rom for a clean install.
If you are not in touch with all flashing rom method i sugest you to search about that.
I think with wiui you need to change your stock recovery and flash cwm recovery. THen in cwm you can format and reset all your phone easly and from scratch.

What ever i tried it says
Package error or bad gateway or upgrade package can't install

What to do..
Please its very urgent
Are you using MiRecovery? If yes, it's normal. You have to unlock the bootloader (fastboot oem unlock) and flash a custom recovery (fastboot flash recovery recovery.img)
