Failed to apply plugin [id 'com.android.library']

I try to compile a Android Project which uses another library called HoloGraphLibrary. But when I want to compile the following error occurs:

Plugin is too old, please update to a more recent version, or set ANDROID_DAILY_OVERRIDE environment variable to "9e19705c8c53c2712ca27200bfa349e4757e2264"

Error:(1, 1) A problem occurred evaluating project ':HoloGraphLibrary'.


Failed to apply plugin [id 'com.android.library']
Could not create plugin of type 'LibraryPlugin'.


The source of that error is:

apply plugin: 'com.android.library'

android {
compileSdkVersion Integer.parseInt(project.ANDROID_BUILD_SDK_VERSION)
buildToolsVersion project.ANDROID_BUILD_TOOLS_VERSION

sourceSets {
main {
java.srcDirs = ['src']
res.srcDirs = ['res']
manifest.srcFile 'AndroidManifest.xml'
}
}
}


which is the build.gradle of the library. The build.gradle of the app looks as follows:

apply plugin: 'com.android.application'

android {
compileSdkVersion 21
buildToolsVersion '19.1.0'
defaultConfig {
applicationId "XXXXXXXXXXX"
minSdkVersion 14
targetSdkVersion 21
versionCode 2
versionName '1.0.1'
}
buildTypes {
release {
minifyEnabled true
proguardFiles getDefaultProguardFile('proguard-android.txt'), 'proguard-rules.pro'
}
}
sourceSets {
main {
res.srcDirs = ['src/main/res', 'src/main/res/tut', 'src/main/res/tutorial']
resources.srcDirs = ['src/main/resources', 'src/main/resources/te']
}
}
}

dependencies {
compile fileTree(include: ['*.jar'], dir: 'libs')
compile 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:21.0.3'
compile project(":HoloGraphLibrary")
}


I just don't see how i can fix this. Any hints?

Thank you

--------------- EDIT ----------------

This is the top level gradle file.

// Top-level build file where you can add configuration options common to all sub-projects/modules.

buildscript {
repositories {
jcenter()
}
dependencies {
classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:2.1.0-beta1'

// NOTE: Do not place your application dependencies here; they belong
// in the individual module build.gradle files
}
}

allprojects {
repositories {
jcenter()
}
}


Unfortunately, the suggestion of G.K. did not work!

I have even tried to set the ANDROID_DAILY_OVERRIDE variable to what it has said to, but again the same error.

Answer

Well I just solved the issue by replacing

apply plugin: 'com.android.library'

with its deprecated version

apply plugin: 'android-library'

That seems to work for now, but I don't think this is the optimal solution, so I'm open to better ones.
