git push fail with "error: remote unpack failed: eof before pack header was fully read..."

Edited

Hi!

 

I have at least two repositories that I currently fail to do git push to. Both fail with the error:

error: remote unpack failed: eof before pack header was fully read
To bitbucket.org:da9l/<redacted repo>.git
! [remote rejected] master -> master (unpacker error)
error: failed to push some refs to 'bitbucket.org:da9l/<redacted repo>.git'

 

What am I missing here?

Hello @da9l ,

Welcome to Atlassian Community.

The repack error might happen if you run out of memory when compressing large files.

Would you please try executing the below commands to limit the pack memory and threads,  and try again ?

git config --global pack.windowMemory "100m"
git config --global pack.packSizeLimit "100m"
git config --global pack.threads "1"

Reference: https://stackoverflow.com/a/66246671

Also, you can make a consistency check in your repo to confirm there are no corrupted files:

git fsck

Once you execute the commands above, you can try pushing to the repository again and check how it goes.

Hope that helps, let us know in case you run into any issues.

Thank you, @da9l .

Kind regards,

Patrik S
