Not being able to clone repo despite being an admin

I am a member of a team with 2 repositories. In repo A, I only have write access and there is no problem. I can push my changes just fine. 


Then another member create a repo, and made me an admin which means I should have write access to it. But when I tried to clone the repo, I got this message


fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

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



Should there be a configuration of setting I should be aware of?


Thanks and best regards,

Hello @jgdelacruz5 

Welcome to the Atlassian Community..!!!

Also If SSH Can you please confirm whether the SSH Keys are added to the user account or the repository?

For additional information, can you please do a verbose of the clone and look/share the error where its failing. Also i am posting the knowledge base articles. Hope it might help you.
