[Solved] Can't open a session with Neo4j OGM

I can't open a session with neo4j ogm, I can't figure why.
I'm following this :
I got the following error :

My neo4j databse is accessible on localhost 7474 and I double checked the password. Any help is welcomed.

Can you check your dependencies again? The exception you are seeing comes from a Neo4j-OGM version at least 3.1.8.
It has nothing to do with wrong credentials or similar but looks to me like a version mismatch between the neo4j-ogm-core and the neo4j-ogm-bolt-driver (and the neo4j-ogm-api that comes as a transitive dependency from the bolt-driver).

God I feel so stupid. I was indeed importing packages from another project where I use ogm version 3.1.13.
I lost my afternoon but you saved my evening...
