Error error cloning remote repo origin


I’m trying to clone a remote repo, but I’m getting an error. Any ideas what might be causing this?

git clone

Clone the remote repository to your local machine:

git clone


fatal: Unable to find remote helper for ‘https’

This error is usually caused by one of two things:

  1. Your git config is pointing to an HTTPS URL for the remote repository, but you’re trying to clone with SSH. To fix this, you can either update your config file to use the SSH URL for the remote repository, or use the git clone command with the –config switch to override your existing config:

git clone –config https.switch=true

  1. You’re trying to clone a repository that does not exist. Make sure you are using the correct URL for the repository you’re trying to clone.
    repository not found
    The repository you are trying to clone does not exist. Check the URL and try again.

    git clone

Cloning a repository creates a local copy of the remote repo. This allows you to make changes to your code locally, and then push those changes back up to the remote repo for others to use.

To clone a repo, you will need to have Git installed on your computer. You can check if you have Git installed by running the following command in your terminal:

git –version

If you see an output like “git version 2.7.4”, then you have Git installed. If you don’t see this output, or if you see an error message, then you will need to install Git before you can continue.

Once you have Git installed, you can clone a remote repository by running the following command:

git clone [repository url]

Replace [repository url] with the url of the remote repository that you want to clone.

repository not found

The repository you are trying to clone does not exist. Please check the spelling of the repository URL and try again.
