Moving repo


I'm pretty much a git and Bitbucket newbie and I've kind of run out of leads on this. 

I've got a local repo that I've inherited from a previous employee who's now left.  I simply want to upload this to a new B.B. repo. Repo is set up but when I try to push

git push origin master

I get: 

fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.

git remote -v gives me:

origin <workspace-id><workspace-id>/<repo>.git (fetch)
origin <workspace-id><workspace-id>/<repo>.git (push)

and the git config file contains:

[remote "origin"]
url = <workspace-id><workspace-id>/<repo>.git

In BitBucket if I go to User and Group Access -> Add members and try to add myself I get

Steve M was not added. As an Admin of this workspace Steve M already has implicit admin access to this repositry

Can anyone please point me to where I should be looking next?

Hi Steve and welcome to the community!

The issue is caused by the remote URL of the repo, an SSH URL should have the following format:

You can change the remote url in your clone with the following command:

git remote set-url origin

where workspace-id and repo replace with the values for your workspace and repo.

Please keep in mind that you need to set up SSH keys for your account (if you haven't done so already) in order to clone/pull/push to repositories via SSH:

Just a heads up, I removed the actual workspace id and repo names from your post to protect your privacy.

If you have any questions, please feel free to let me know!

Kind regards,
