Github rejecting ssh

I’ve been using ssh keys with github for a while now. Suddenly i can’t push and I’m getting a Permission denied (publickey) error.
Here’s what I’ve tried so far:

  • Checked the ssh key is in the correct directory (~/.ssh)
  • Tried reuploading my public key to github (I get a message that the key already exists)
  • Double checked that the output of ssh-add -l -E sha256 on my system agrees with the string in my ssh settings on my github account
  • Followed all the steps in the “Troubleshooting ssh” section of the github docs. (Everything seems gucci)
  • Banged my head against the wall for an hour

So far nothing has helped. This is my last resort. I’ll greatly appreciate any and all suggestions. Here’s the output of my ssh -vT git@github.com
