GitHub repository could not be created from template

When I click on this assignment link for a class I’m taking, I get a “There was an error accepting the assignment. GitHub repository could not be created from template, please try again… If this problem persists, please contact support.” error.

I’ve tried this repeatedly on two different accounts, and have also noticed similar error messages in other threads here. However, it seems that other students in my class are able to successfully create a repository from this template, so I figured I would reach out here.

Thanks.
