How am I even pushing/pulling to/from the repository? Edited

I have a couple questions embedded in here actually.

Background: I am new to bitbucket, but I have been creating several repositories and using them without any issues until now.

Problem #1: I was using a git submodule and had difficulty performing the following command: 

git submodule update --init

 Which resulted in errors:  "Server does not allow request for unadvertised object..." and " Direct fetching of that commit failed".  I haven't been able to figure this out yet, but this lead me to problem #2

Problem #2

I looked at the remote URL for the parent project:

$ git remote --v
origin (fetch)
origin (push) 

And then I got confused because it looks like I've been pushing/pulling this whole time without having to enter credentials (i.e. HTTPS should require credentials)!  And further confusing is that I don't have an SSH key either.  So how is the repository authenticating my credentials??  And does this problem relate to problem #1 where it doesn't have authentication to be able to update the submodule?
