Hi@akhtar,

This can be caused in incorrect proxy settings , or error typing name, make sure you're using the exact URL of whatever you're trying to do.

Try these commands.

git config --global --unset http.proxy

Also set user- name and user-email.

git config --global user.name "user name"
git config --global user.email "user email"

Hope this will solve your error.

It might be the error that is caused by a protected repository. Check if you have privileges to that repository, or if you have changed your password. In any of these cases...execute the following commands:

git init

git remote add origin https://github.com/your_repository.git

git config --local credential.helper ""

This command will ask you to enter  your credentials when you execute git pull or push commands. 

So now execute the following command, so instead of cloning we are pulling from the repository.

git pull origin master
