As this is the first thing that comes up on Google when searching this error, I wanted to add the answer I found that worked when I stumbled upon this issue.


In short: I didnt have write access to the repo.

Hi Swathi,

This could be the same reason as from this post: https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/125892/submodule-with-different-user-fails-to-clone-push-with-sourcetree

In short, it might be because you're using HTTPS authentication and not specifying your username in the URL. Have a read and see if it helps.


I was getting this because the case of the username I entered was not the same as the case of the username in the URL/path. e.g. I would type username, but the repo url was https://Username@server.com:8443/path/project.git
