Method 1 : upgrade lib ๐Ÿ”—

Just open build.gradle, then change the version of gradle plugin as said in the error.

plugins {
....
id 'org.jetbrains.kotlin.android' version '1.8.10' apply false
}

The error is Duplicate class kotlin.collections.jdk8.CollectionsJDK8Kt found in modules jetified-kotlin-stdlib-1.8.0 (org.jetbrains.kotlin:kotlin-stdlib:1.8.0) and jetified-kotlin-stdlib-jdk8-1.6.0 (org.jetbrains.kotlin:kotlin-stdlib-jdk8:1.6.0). so, the current version is 1.6.0, then change it to 1.8.0. The idea here is to change the version according to the error message you receive.

If this method did not fix the error, try the following method.

Method 2 : exclude Kotlin stdlib ๐Ÿ”—

Open build.gradle (:app) file, add this code at the end of the file; to exclude kotlin-stdlib-jdk8.

configurations.implementation {
exclude group: 'org.jetbrains.kotlin', module: 'kotlin-stdlib-jdk8'
}

I recommend trying the first method because it is the straightforward way. The second method is a work-around way.

I hope this helps you. You know someone will benefit from this, share it with him/her, a friend or colleage.
