Solution

There are two protobuf JAR files installed with Vivado 2017.1 which can lead to a conflict on some Linux machines.

To work around the issue you can rename or remove the protobuf-java-3.1.0.jar file under <Vivado Install Folder>/lib/classes.

Removing this file does not have any negative effect on Vivado, so it is safe to do so.

This issue will be fixed in Vivado 2017.2.
