Hello everyone,
I would like to plot the first plot you can see here with the "%other plots" that you see in the code, but I got an error.
Can anyone help me please?
Thank you.

errorbar() does support datetime inputs
The problem is that you are plotting year first, and the year you plot is pure numeric, 1998+something. Once you have plotted numeric in an axes, you cannot plot datetime or categorical in the same axes.
The workaround is to turn the year into datetime objects,
Years = datetime(Years, 1, 1, 'Format', 'yyyy')

errorbar() doesn't support datetime inputs. You'll end up needing to avoid that, which might complicate things a bit:

but it's weird, because on my matlab I can plot this plots separately, but not all together.
