You would think this message means… “Website with given name already exists”.
All but that, it means you have Visual Studio debugging enabled for version 2015.
The warning before is actually the real error, “request value VS2015 not found”.
A known error when executing the PowerShell script: “Get-AzureWebSite”… read : https://github.com/Azure/azure-powershell/issues/462
Simply switching off Remote Debugging doesn’t solve it. You must set it to 2013.
The fun thing, when you remote debug again from VS2015, the action ‘Attach Debugger –> Applying remote debugger settings’… will switch the settings back for your Azure Website, resulting again in failing deployments. Good to know.
good to read there are plans to improve this experience: Release Management planning update – 2016 H2
