Upgrade cakephp 2 app -> cakephp 3 app, `Cannot declare App because the name is already in use`

Question

I am having a problem when attempting to upgrade my cakephp 2 app to cakephp 3.

I am using PHP 7.1 & Ubuntu 16 and nginx/1.10.0 (Ubuntu)

I am getting the following error...

Fatal error: Cannot declare class lib\Cake\Core\App because the name is already in use in /usr/share/nginx/html/web/lib/Cake/Core/App.php on line 70

I am following this page: https://github.com/cakephp/upgrade

I am first using these commands:

bin/cake upgrade locations [path]
bin/cake upgrade namespaces [path]
bin/cake upgrade app_uses [path]

bin/cake upgrade rename_classes [path]
bin/cake upgrade rename_collections [path]

bin/cake upgrade fixtures [path]
bin/cake upgrade tests [path]
bin/cake upgrade i18n [path]
bin/cake upgrade skeleton [path]
bin/cake upgrade prefixed_templates [path]

    Looks like you might have CakePHP on an include_path or have otherwise installed the upgrade plugin in a way that isn't composer install inside the upgrade plugin. Unless you've cloned the upgrade tool into /usr/share/nginx/html/web/.
