WICD and Network Manager do the same thing. If both of them are trying
to do the same thing at the same time, they interfere with each other.

Same answer. Indicator-Network is a GUI for Connman, which does the same
thing as Network Manager and WICD. And you can't run more than one
network management daemon at the same time.
