Hi, Rajat!

Not sure if I understood your problem correctly. But when you say you typed your ubuntu password, do you mean your local machine's user? If so, it's not what you should do.
When you run git push from your local machine to your Bitbucket repository you need to enter your Bitbucket's user password. The same you use to log in to

Worked for me !Thanks
