remote: Repository not found – Few suggestions
Typos errors are very common in the digital world. As repository names are case-sensitive, make sure the spellings are correct.
If you are trying to push to a private repository but do not have permission to view the repository, you’ll receive this error.
Make sure that you have access to the repository in one of the below ways:
- You’re the owner of the repository
- A collaborator on the repository
- A member of a team that has access to the repository.
Check if the repository really exists
Make sure that the repository really exists on GitHub! If you’re trying to push to a repository that doesn’t exist, you’ll end up with this error.
Repository not found? Check your credentials
In rare circumstances, you may not have the proper access to a repository, which happened in my case. I had used the wrong credentials that couldn’t access the repository. I removed the credentials from the credential manager as shown below:
D:\Qiskit> git credential-manager uninstall
And added the new credentials which have permission to access the repository.
D:\Qiskit> git credential-manager install
Now I could easily push to the repository.
