Dependencies not being excluded

I have the following POM but my exclusion for abdera-client are not being respected. Actually only 2 of them are not the 2 not working are maven-plugins and maven-plugins they are coming down anyways see what am I missing I have altered the POM but I cleared my local cache and refreshed dependencies This is my gradle script

I do believe I am also running into this but I am not sure what to do about it
