"Miksi sinä et asu enää Berliinissä" should also be correct

Miksi sinä et asu ⇒ Mikset asu

Miksi te ette asu ⇒ Miksette asu

I think those must be accepted.

This is annoying! "Miksi (sinä) et asu / Miksi (te) ette asu" and also "Mikset (sinä) asu / Miksette (te) asu".

Whats wrong with miksi ette asu enää Berliinissä?

It's nothing wrong to say so. Or "miksette asu enää Berliinissä".

"Ette" already includes the pronoun "te" so it's pointless to say "te ette".

That's right, too, but it's a bit older Finnish language.

You are right. Please report!

Reported "my answer should have neen accepted" (without "te") on 4 September 2020.
