TransformException duplicate entry for common.annotations.Beta

This started when I added google-api-services-calendar. I am getting this error when trying to build:

Error:Execution failed for task ':app:transformClassesWithJarMergingForDebug'.
     com.android.build.transform.api.TransformException: java.util.zip.ZipException: 
     duplicate entry: com/google/common/annotations/Beta.class

This is part of the output when running ./gradlew app:dependencies:

I have tried adding this to all my dependencies:

compile (some.dependencie.that.may.or.may.not.have.the.duplicate){
    exclude group: 'com.google.common', module: 'annotations'
}

I tried adding this to my android block:

configurations {
   all*.exclude group: 'com.google.common', module: 'annotations'
}    

with these variations:

 all*.exclude module: 'annotations`
 all*.exclude group: 'com.google.common'
 all*.exclude group: 'com.google.common.annotations'

This is the build.gradle before any attempts to fix error:

    compile fileTree(dir: 'libs', include: ['*.jar'])

}

I have searched my project for Beta.class and found that it is only being used in some jars; com.google.common.annotations, com.google.api.client.util and dagger.internal. I tried to add the exclude group to those related dependencies and still see the same error.

I have been stuck here for way too long. Any suggestions?

Exclude group: 'com.google.guava' from play services related dependencies.

For example:

compile ('com.google.android.gms:play-services:8.1.0'){
    exclude group: 'com.google.guava'
}

P.S. Before getting your error I've faced with a lot of different, so my final dependencies list is:

    compile fileTree(dir: 'libs', include: ['*.jar'])

I got this error when I had different versions of play services libs in my app module and a library module.


I found the reason to be the incorrectly configured dagger-compiler:

compile 'com.google.dagger:dagger-compiler:2.1'

What I had done is to modify project' build.gradle:

buildscript {
    dependencies {
        classpath 'com.neenbedankt.gradle.plugins:android-apt:1.8'
    }
}

And later the application build.gradle:

First, add plugin:

apply plugin: 'com.neenbedankt.android-apt'

And later modify the dependency to:

apt "com.google.dagger:dagger-compiler:2.1"
