AngularJS and UI-Router: 'Error: transition superseded' during angularjs unit tests

I'm attempting to create an authorization package for a project of mine. I'm getting the error 'transition superseded' during my unit tests, and I can't find out where that would actually be.

Unit test:

import angular from 'angular';
import 'angular-mocks';
import worldManagerApp from '../../src/world-manager-app';
import security from '../../src/security/security';

const {inject, module} = angular.mock;

describe('LoginService', ()=> {
    let $httpBackend;
    let $rootScope;
    let successHandler;
    let errorHandler;
    let LoginService;

    const USER = {username: "TEST", password: "PASSWORD"};

    beforeEach(function() {


    beforeEach(inject((_$httpBackend_, _LoginService_, _$rootScope_) => {
        $httpBackend = _$httpBackend_;
        $rootScope = _$rootScope_;
        LoginService = _LoginService_;

        successHandler = jasmine.createSpy('successHandler');
        errorHandler = jasmine.createSpy('errorHandler');

    it('should exist', () => {

    describe('.login()', () => {

        describe('when given a proper username and password', () => {
           it('should return the username and success', () => {
               $httpBackend.expectPOST('/login').respond(200, {user: USER});
               LoginService.login("TEST", "PASSWORD");




export default function LoginService($http){

    let service = {};
    service.login = login;

    function login(username, password){
            method: 'POST',
            data: {
                username: username,
                password: password,
        }).then (function(response) {

    return service;

I assume it's a ui-Router problem, but I can't figure out how it should work if I am doing it wrong.

I had the same issue after update angular from 1.5.9 to version 1.6.1 and could solved it by update the dependencies with:

npm update angular-ui-router

The old version 0.3.1 leads to the error, with the updated version 0.3.2 my app works fine again (now with angular 1.6.1).

When updating to angular 1.6.1 that's the message, but upgrading the ui-router to 0.3.2 fix the problem
