I am trying to redeem the funds from the smart contract into the second wallet without running cardano-node (following the instructions from here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ABtffZPoUqU&list=PLNEK_Ejlx3x2zxcfoVGARFExzOHwXFCCL&index=11) but I get the following error (bcc is blockfrost's cardano-cli is taken from here https://github.com/blockfrost/blockfrost-cardano-cli):

After pretty-printing this error for a bit I found the two errors mentioned in the question.

Here are the commands I used:

# give.sh (these commands ran fine)

To fix UnspendableUTxONoDatumHash I tried to hash the unit.json file using cardano-cli transaction hash-script-data --script-data-file unit.json > datum.hash but then the final command called this address 803a67b79578b8f24a15958a232b98aa2a40ec5e4d0e172e67336a235e51f328 as UnspendableUTxONoDatumHash.

To fix PPViewHashesDontMatch I tried searching for the hashes on the blockchain explorer but didn't find anything. In any case, I checked whether the beneficiary in Deploy.hs is set correctly but didn't find anything wrong there.

Edit #1

after fixing order of options I changed the build-raw command in give.sh to

cardano-cli transaction build-raw \
    --alonzo-era \
    --tx-in 079fa1b365b9a39a729968e3702f9a638f35cdcebdb1ea2ca5aeca4d32b20a0e#1 \

    --tx-out $(cat 01.addr)+199200000 \
    --fee 200000 \
    --out-file tx.body

I get a different error

    The PPViewHashesDontMatch error from Edit #2 is caused by protocol parameters file not having cost models field populated - this is a problem with blockfrost-cardano-cli not having access to cost models via Api resulting in script transactions failing.

Notice how nested parameters are. I think you are basically attaching datum to --tx-out $(cat 01.addr)+789600000 and not transaction to the smartcontract!
