ERROR: Repository not found message given when following the instructions for Jekyll-Bootstrap
Github pages not working for me when using Jekyll-Bootstrap.
I followed the instructions here:
The instructions say:
$ git clone https://github.com/plusjade/jekyll-bootstrap.git USERNAME.github.com $ cd USERNAME.github.com $ git remote set-url origin email@example.com:USERNAME/USERNAME.github.com.git $ git push origin master

ERROR: Repository not found. fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly
How do I get this to work?

I also used CNAME file to redirect to my custom domain. It works fine for sometime pushes successfully and can commit. But after sometime it gives the same error.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.
At this time _site folder is created on your root at username.github.io
I couldn’t know the solution yet but deleting the remote repo and pushing into empty repo again.
