Hi there, I’m pretty new to Git and Github. I set up an account and created a public repo. I opened Git Bash and navigated to the desktop, where I wanted to store the repo clone. Then, I entered
git clone https://github.com/<my_user_name_>/<my_repo_name>.git
I get the following error:
Cloning into 'test'... firstname.lastname@example.org: Permission denied (publickey). fatal: Could not read from remote repository. Please make sure you have the correct access rights and the repository exists.
The repo definitely exists and I have the proper access rights because it’s public (I’m aware there are some problems with private repos but they probably don’t apply here). I used the HTTPS clone link, so I’m not sure why I’m getting this error. What can I do? Would I need to do a hard delete and reinstallation of Git and whatnot?
Thanks in advance
