Hello @OC2PS,

There's something wrong with the file permissions on your local file system. That Permission denied error is for accessing .git/FETCH_HEAD file.

I have no idea why this could happen, but I'd first try to clone the repository in question somewhere else and try the operation there.

Hope this helps.

Cheers,
Daniil
