Merging a pull request results in error :The remote end hung up unexpectedly

Hi, we have setup a Bitbucket server running in an Openshift container. Everything seems to be working quite well exept for 1 thing:

After having creatd a feature branch, do some changes on the featuyre branche, commit and push the changes, creating a pull request and after approval of the pull request   I want to merge the code back to the master branch. At that point I get this error:

'/usr/bin/git clone --no-checkout --shared -b master /var/atlassian/application-data/bitbucket/shared/data/repositories/18 /var/atlassian/application-data/bitbucket/tmp/git/mjop-elements-ui-work5448053009367969887.git' exited with code 128 saying: Cloning into '/var/atlassian/application-data/bitbucket/tmp/git/mjop-elements-ui-work5448053009367969887.git'... done. fatal: unable to look up current user in the passwd file: no such user fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly

I check the log files and the usual suspects such as user permissions etc but could niot find a clue of whats causing the error...

Could you help me to find the cause of the problem???
