    This is a warning that no commits have been made to the repository yet.
    Are you sure this is the repository you intended to clone?

    This happens when you are cloning a freshly created repository with no commits.

    As it says, it is just a warning. If it is expected that there is nothing in the repository, you can go ahead and add files and commit and push back.

    If it is not supposed to be empty, contact the person/admin who gave you the link.
