If you have recently restarted your Mac, please check if the ssh-agent has your keys loaded. If not, please add them to the agent. 

Run below commands in terminal to do so,

To check if keys are loaded:

ssh-add -l

To add keys to agent:

ssh-add <path_to_key>

more like,

ssh-add ~/.ssh/id_rsa

Key in the passphrase used while generating the ssh key and you should be good to go.

sorry thats no solution to my problem.

Can you add the response of ssh-add -l here?

Problem is solved. I don’t know if This is a permanent solution, but I have removed the remote reposities. Then pair the SSH keys. Then push the local reposities back to a new remote repositie, and everything works Again. Maybe Luck, I don’t know, but the problem is solved.

Thanks for the support.
