If you use Frictionless supports only on the faces highlighted in yellow, the part is free to move in its axial direction. The Frictionless supports won’t constrain that, and thus you are getting the DOF error.

Cyclic symmetry won’t work with cartesian; as it needs a cylindrical coordinate system. Can you please explain issue #1 by posting the result images?
