Game Development Cameras in Unity Camera Basics Scene Overview

Unity won't let me play this project because of compiler error CS1704

After downloading the project, loading up the Unity file (I'm using Unity 2017.3.1f1) and attempting to hit play after adding a camera like in the video, I was hit with compiler error CS1704, which prevents me from playing and proceeding.

CS1704: "An assembly with the same name ` UnityEngine.UI' has already been imported. Consider removing one of the references or sign the assembly..."

I tried going into the scripts and addressing this issue on my own, but I'm not entirely sure where it's coming from. (Unlike other Unity errors, this one isn't displaying where the error was thrown.)

Anyone have any ideas?
