Token not working in command line

Sorry for my english I am not a speaker. I am a linux user (Antix linux 19.4) and git in version 2.20.1 and I have the same problem, I tried everything to solve it and I spent a whole day. I wasted a day with this silly bug but finally I managed to fix it.
My solution was to do the following:

> git clone https://github.com/user/repo.git
   UserName for 'https://github.com': you_token
   Password for 'https://you_token@github.com': (empty)

and this worked perfectly.
I hope it works for you.

@sCancelada thanks!

Very weird but entering my token in place of my username, then leaving ‘password’ empty totally worked for me.

Worked for me.

I’ve found the solution, turns out that copy pasting the PAT puts out a - or something, so just type it out by hand and see if that works!
