Hi @nermelthisiscrowd and welcome to the community!

This error usually shows when using SSH to clone, pull or push to a certain repo and the root cause is not always the same. We would need some additional info to be able to better help you.

Could you please let us know the following:

1. What operation gives you this error? Is it a clone, a pull, or a push?

2. Have you set up SSH keys for Bitbucket Cloud on this machine?

If so, where have you added the public key?

3. Can you update or create your SSH configuration file (~/.ssh/config) with the following content:

    AddKeysToAgent yes
    IdentityFile ~/.ssh/{ssh-key-name}

where {ssh-key-name} replace with the name of your private SSH key, whose public key you have uploaded to Bitbucket. Then, try the same operation that was failing and let me know if it works.

Kind regards,
