Android Studio: Error:Execution failed for task ':app:dexDebug'

I'm using Android Studio for the first time and I got the following error after importing the project (previously it was an eclipse project where I had issues too.)

Here is the information given:

Error:Execution failed for task ':app:dexDebug'.

BUILD FAILED


The app build.gradle is this:

apply plugin: 'com.android.application'

android {
compileSdkVersion 21
buildToolsVersion "21.1.2"

defaultConfig {
applicationId "com.myapp.test"
minSdkVersion 11
targetSdkVersion 14
}

buildTypes {
release {
minifyEnabled false
proguardFiles getDefaultProguardFile('proguard-android.txt'), 'proguard-rules.txt'
}
}
}

dependencies {
compile 'com.android.support:support-v4:18.0.0'
compile 'com.android.support:appcompat-v7:21.0.3'
compile 'com.google.android.gms:play-services:+'
compile files('libs/google-play-services.jar')
compile files('libs/httpcore-4.3.2.jar')
compile files('libs/httpmime-4.3.4.jar')
}


And the project built.gradle is this:

buildscript {
repositories {
jcenter()
}
dependencies {
classpath 'com.android.tools.build:gradle:1.0.0'
}
}

allprojects {
repositories {
jcenter()
}
}


Do you have any idea what the problem could be and how can it be solved? A good explanation for the problem would be useful too as I am new to Android Studio. Thanks in advance :)

Answer
compile 'com.google.android.gms:play-services:+'
compile files('libs/google-play-services.jar')

I think you should remove 1 of those lines.
