error: RPC failed; result=52 while cloning

git clone

 will simply return the error 

error: RPC failed; result=52, HTTP code = 0
fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly


I have tried increasing my Http buffer size and other stuff mentioned online but in vain.


Can someone help me how I should be able to clone?

Based on the error mentioned, it seems your repository is quite big and HTTPS prolocol cannot handle it correclty. That said, you could:

  1. evaluate the issue by running the following from Command Prompt / Terminal:

    # Linux
    export GIT_TRACE_PACKET=1
    export GIT_TRACE=1
    export GIT_CURL_VERBOSE=1
    # Windows
    set GIT_TRACE=1
    git clone
  2. attempt on increasing the buffer size

    git config http.postBuffer <SIZE>

    Please, refer to the following documentartion for further information:

  3. clone using SSH instead
  4. raise a support request as already suggested in this thread

Kind regards,
