SourceTree Unable to Push to BitBucket

Not sure what happened, but I am now unable to push git changes to BitBucket. I have not changed any settings or public keys. I see my public key listed in BitBucket and it matches what I have in SourceTree.

This is the error I am getting:

git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false -c credential.helper=sourcetree push -v --tags archeryscorekeeper refs/heads/master:refs/heads/master

Pushing to ssh://

Permission denied (publickey).

fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights and the repository exists.

Hi David, are you also getting this issue when pushing from the command line?

If you do, it could be that Bitbucket could not authenticate you with the key that was offered by your SSH agent. You can run this command from your terminal and see which username is attempting to connect to Bitbucket:

ssh -Tv

You can also run this command to see which key is your SSH agent currently offering:

ssh-add -L

Note that with ssh-agent management Bitbucket uses the first key in the list. 

If you're not having any problems when using the command line, please let us know which SourceTree version do you have and which OS so we can continue helping you with this.
