git clone error: fatal: RPC failed; curl 52 Empty reply from server The remote end hung up unexpectedly

I get this error cloning a specific repo, while other of my repos clone with no problem:

git clone error: fatal: RPC failed; curl 52 Empty reply from server The remote end hung up unexpectedly

Any idea about a solution?

There might be more information in the server logs. I'd suggest opening a support request on https://support.atlassian.com and uploading support zip so our support engineers can scan for errors in the logs.

Hello John,

Based on the error mentioned, it seems you are experiencing issues while cloning using HTTP(S) prolocol. 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_PACKET=1
    set GIT_TRACE=1
    set GIT_CURL_VERBOSE=1
     
    git clone <YOUR CLONE URL>
  2. attempt on increasing the buffer size

    git config http.postBuffer <SIZE>

    Please, refer to the following documentartion for further information:

    https://confluence.atlassian.com/bitbucketserverkb/error-rpc-failed-result-22-push-to-bitbucket-server-fails-779171801.html

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

Kind regards,
Rafael P. Sperafico
