Program type already present: com.a.a.a.c$c - Here Maps Android SDK Example

I was trying to run the search example from Here Maps as my boilerplate. But I am unable to get it up and running with the following error showing up listing under Android Issues

Program type already present: com.a.a.a.c$c
Message{kind=ERROR, text=Program type already present: com.a.a.a.c$c, sources=[Unknown source file], tool name=Optional.of(D8)}

Completely clueless as to where this could be coming from, no amount of searching has helped in this.
