Git push using https protocol SUPER SLOW, does not work

Hi, I’ve tried on going on several stack overflow forums to figure out why my git push is super slow. According to these links, ubuntu - Git push takes forever - Stack Overflow and version control - Git pull is very slow... Why? - Stack Overflow, there seems to be some consensus that switching to IPv4 will help. I recently installed UBUNTU 20.04 and windows subsystem for Linux on my computer (I wonder if these possibly screwed things up for me). Also, git clone doesn’t work either.

See my git push below:

$ git push -u -v origin main
Pushing to https://github.com/brian-campbell-said-mba18/leetcode-valid-palindrome-ii.git

So, the “pushing to https…” message stays on my screen forever and never actually pushes to github.

Any help would be much appreciated!
