Unable to push into public repository in Bitbucket cloud Edited

Hello Everyone,

I am a regular bitucket server user and recently an external vendor had setup a repository on bitbucket cloud. 

I am having issues ever since.


Using Linux machines with http_proxy,https_proxy variables set.


1) I am able to clone a public repository, but unable to push anything to it.

When pushing I get password prompt and then the error.

Password for 'https://myid@bitbucket.org':  

I entered the password ( I made sure I am entering the correct password)
remote: Unauthorized
fatal: Authentication failed for 'https://myid@bitbucket.org/myid/testpublicrepo.git/'

2) When I try to clone a private repository, I am getting same error

remote: Unauthorized
fatal: Authentication failed for 'https://myid@bitbucket.org/myid/testrepopvt.git/'

Things I have tried:

1)  I tried  curl -L bitbucket.org and responses are coming. 

2) I have entered bitbucket.org in /etc/hosts file.

3) I tried repeating these steps on a repository in bitbucket server and it works like a charm. Here also password is prompted during clone and push operation, but works fine when i enter the password.

git config --global user.name "Username"
git config --global user.email "My Email Id"

git clone http://user@bitucketserver:7990/scm/jen/test.git
cd existing-project
git init
git add --all

git commit -m "Initial Commit"
git remote add origin http://user@bitucketserver:7990/scm/jen/test.git
git push -u origin master
