If you do not select any of the shipping carriers and services, then the plugin will throw the error.
First Class Mail in the list of shipping options available on the admin dashboard but doesn’t display on the front-end (Checkout page).

In addition to that, you may check on the USPS calculator as whether the First Class Mail is returned for your metrics or not.
