Got an invitation to join repo, but can't get past 404

So I got an invitation from my organisation by email.

The invitation link is like: github.com/organization/repo/invitations

Everytime I open it, I get a 404 error page. I am definitely logged in as the right user and using the same domain. I tried opening it in different browsers too. Same thing.

The console shows 2 errors:

Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property 'setAttribute' of null
at XMLHttpRequest.xhr.onload (_error.js:20)

and 

Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 404 (Not Found)

Does anyone have an idea of how to accept the invitation? Thanks in advance.

Are you sure that the invitation was not deleted?

If the invitation wasn’t retracted like @wabri mentioned, try:

  1. Log in
  2. Navigate directly to the repository

If the invitation is still active, you will then be greeted by a “you’re invited” screen.

Also make sure that the account you are logged in with is the same account which received the invite!
