Visual Studio 2012 getting "libgit2.Category=Net An error occurred while sending request" error


I know VS2012 is old, but it has been working without issues for more than six months.

Since last Friday, when I tried to commit changes to the server, I would get a 'libgit2.Category=Net An error occurred while sending request' error... 

I tested in two different network environment, also on two different computers (one that I've been using for 6+months, one that was freshly installed).. All combinations get me this error..

I even tried to clone a repo to local, and got the same error..


Has anybody had similar issues?
