Importing from GitHub Throws ERROR (RESOLVED ... Hopefully for good. 😁)

It will be nice when this banner becomes the exception rather than the rule. I haven’t had a single week this Summer free of this message. I have over 40 years of programming experience on all sorts of systems and am willing to do free consultation.

Note: This is for a public repository. No elevated permissions key is required.


Glitch Terminal Also Fails:

$ rm -rf * && git clone
Cloning into ‘cs1-engine’…
The authenticity of host ‘ (’ can’t be established.
Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? yes
Warning: Permanently added ‘,’ (RSA) to the list of known hosts.
Permission denied (publickey).
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.

No Problem on My Local Machine:


You should contact

For now, can you try over the command line? I have never had any errors there.

This is a community announcement, not a help request.

rm -rf * && git clone REPO_URL

Ok, in that case, I will set this to #feedback.

I appreciate all the effort you put into this community. :pray:t4:


I find it very strange that you can’t update your Github repo through the terminal but I can, let me try again and will let you know if it works.

FYI, Github was down some hours ago.

FYI - GitHub wasn’t down when it was failing in the Glitch terminal. I could easily clone the same repo on my local machine at the same time. :roll_eyes:
