Cloned a public repo, pushed back. Permission denied (publickey)

Just cloned a public repo that belongs to the company on github where I am an admin. Made few changes and pushing it back.

Firsly, it asks me the username / password pair, and I put my own username and password, and it told me:

  • git partial pull
  • Can git rebase record the SHA1 of the original commits like git cherry-pick -x does?
  • Insert git revision number into files during deployment
  • Blacklist .git folder in R CMD check
  • Git changelist's
  • Using Git when I want my branches to be always updated
  • Username for '': 
    Password for '': 
    error: The requested URL returned error: 403 while accessing
    fatal: HTTP request failed

    I solved it by adding ssh to the URL

    Than it bugs me out with:

    Permission denied (publickey).
    fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly

    However I can commit to all the private repos in this organisation and can create other repos as well.

    So my question is:

    1. Why doesn’t github allow me to commit to master of the cloned repo, but it is a trivial question
    2. Should I add key to the organization in order to push to the public repo? Or what solution would you provide

    PS. Never thought that such a simple issue might take so long time to solve.

  • How to switch branches with git and get ignored files removed?
  • Connect local git repos on windows and raspberry pi
  • Check if all commits to one GIT branch have been cherry picked to another
  • How to search git log (using less) for word boundaries
  • git checkout and file directory behavior
  • Dealing with git, generated files and bower

    First make sure you have
    added key
    from this file to GitHub


    then make sure you are cloning with URL similar to this

    git clone

    yet another option is to contact them directly if you have not already. I have emailed them several times, with pleasant experience.

    Also perhaps this page can help
