I have today been allowed to load the latest software update so fingers crossed. The new version DOES allow you to mark mutiple images for deletion (by pressing the vertical options dots twice - i.e. 'select items' then the options dots again and then 'select all'.)
So....let's see how it goes ;-)

A working solution is to create ".nomedia" files as described here: https://talk.sonymobile.com/t5/Album/Duplicate-images-in-Album-application/m-p/748709#M344
It should not be that complicated, but I don't think there is a better solution until the bug that makes the applications index their own thumbnails is fixed.
Perhaps reverting to older versions of Album etc. may help, but I guess that depends on which version of Album your phone came with.

1.Please use a civilized language,being rude is not tolerated here.
2.The command hasn't deleted your files,restart your device and they will be there.

We have done further investigation of this and what we've found is that the cause of this is that a file that's in the phone by default has somehow been removed and needs to be recreated.
The one you're missing is probable the one that should be located in the folder Android/data and you need to recreate it. In this folder there should be a file called ".nomedia" which prevents the folder from being scanned by the media scanner in Android. If for example an app has removed the file Android will consider all pictures there to be standard media.
The most easy solution is probably to download an app that can create .nomedia files for you like https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.studiokuma.nomedia.
Create a file in Android/data, go to Settings -> Apps -> All -> Media Storage -> Clear data (it will not delete any of your files) and then restart the phone.

I'm pretty sure many Xperia users love their phone. I love my Z1 compact. It's a solid, powerful phone. I've been using it for more than 6 months now and I still love it. What really bugs me is that Sony is not doing anything to this simple problem. Another issue to me is the lack of freedom to create folders. Isn't it the most basic and fundermental thing to do? You take pictures, you want to group them yourself. But I can't do it. After so many updates and still no solution. Come on Sony!

Sorry to hear that you still have this issue.
Can you please confirm if you tested what i wrote about recreating the missing .nomedia file in your phone?
To create folders and move files you can use the preinstalled app called File Commander.
