My repo is not enabled? Requests "git flow init"?

When I attempt to add a new feature branch to my repo through git-flow I get this error:

fatal: Not a gitflow-enabled repo yet. Please run "git flow init" first.

I have a master and develop branch. I have looked into the .git/config file to see if there was an inconsistency, but it looked fine:

	repositoryformatversion = 0
	filemode = true
	bare = false
	logallrefupdates = true
	ignorecase = true
	precomposeunicode = false
[remote "origin"]
	url =
	fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*
[gitflow "branch"]
	master = master
	develop = develop
[gitflow "prefix"]
	feature = feature/
	release = release/
	hotfix = hotfix/
	versiontag = 
[branch "develop"]
        remote = origin
        merge = refs/heads/develop

What could possibly be the issue here?

Try running "git flow feature start featurename" from the terminal, and see if you get the same error.
