Hi @Sarsij and welcome to the community!

Is the GitHub repository you are trying to import private? If so, are you providing authorization details on the import page?

Please keep in mind that you will need to generate a personal access token for your GitHub account, and use that instead of your account's password in the import form, as GitHub has deprecated basic password authentication for Git operations.

You can find in the link below how to generate a personal access token:

Please feel free to let me know if this works for you or if you're still experiencing issues.

Kind regards,
