EAS build (Managed) fails with error: Execution failed for task ':app:mergeDexRelease'.

Running eas build --platform android in my managed app outputs the error:

Execution failed for task ':app:mergeDexRelease'.
[stderr] > A failure occurred while executing com.android.build.gradle.internal.tasks.Workers$ActionFacade

Why am I getting this error with eas build and how can I fix it? Thanks you for your help as I’m stuck here for the past 2 days

that error means that package com.reactnativecommunity.viewpager is loaded twice, once in @react-native-community/viewpager and once in react-native-pager-view. Either you added them as dependencies, or they are dependencies of some of the other packages you are using

Thank you for help. I remove the above mentioned dependencies which were not used anyway and the build worked
