"Reapplying" N400, should my USCIS account still show the old one?

Let me explain further.

 

In June I moved to a new state. I was eligible to apply for the N400 and did so after moving. Silly me completely misinterpreted/ignored the 90 day residency requirement since I only lived in my new apartment in this new state for only a week before I applied. I realized my application would get rejected during the interview even if the process was going to take over a year so I decided to withdraw my application by sending as written letter to my field office. I never attended the biometrics and received a response from my district office acknowledging my withdrawal request.

 

Weirdly I still got emails every two weeks with the same "there are no updates at this time". My account still shows the application with an estimated completion date of late 2019. My account has the uploaded letter acknowledging my withdrawal, but my application still shows when I log in.

 

I am now eligible to apply for N400. I am doing so again, but before I submit I was worried and curious if this will cause any problems during the process. I will have a second n400 attached to my account and my old application still shows on the main page and isn't labeled as cancelled.

 

My questions are

1. Is this a cause for concern?

2. For anyone who had to reapply the N400 is there something I should keep in mind or consider?

This part is normal---it's a glitch in the system.  I still get emails stating "there are no updates" and I became a citizen in October 2017....

No.  As you said, your account reflects the first withdrawal.

At your interview, the IO might ask you why you withdrew the first application, but that can easily be explained and is not an issue.

Call the USCIS hotline and speak to a level 2 officer to make sure, they should be able to dig deeper into the account to determine whether or not your old application has been voided.

As for the online system, yeah I would just ignore that. I naturalized more than a month ago, and I still get update emails from them, and ECD still shows the end of 2018.
