Visual Studio/NuGet error: "... already has a dependency defined for ..."

In order to get rid of some 2.3k error messages in Google Webmaster (for a different site), I figured I'd code a solution to do this for me, rather than doing so manually. This would require me to use the Google Apis Client Library in Visual Studio 2013.

When attempting to do so, I received the following error:

System.net.http already has a dependency defined for System.io
This stumped me for a bit. The solution was to upgrade NuGet to the latest version, and restart Visual Studio. The link that contained the download that solved my issues is the Nuget Package Manager for Visual Studio 2013.
