This is just a quick post for those that may be having problems using git client to say clone or pull from remote repos.
I noticed that my Fedora 28 VM recently started to complain when I issued git commands towards Bitbucket. An example is shown below.
Using openssh-clients-7.8p1-3.fc28.x86_64 gives the following error.
✔ ~/repos/missile_run [master|✔] 12:28 $ git pull packet_write_wait: Connection to 188.8.131.52 port 22: Broken pipe fatal: Could not read from remote repository. Please make sure you have the correct access rights and the repository exists.
If this happens, you can try the following to downgrade openssh-clients to openssh-clients-7.8p1-2.fc28.x86_64. It fixed my problem (for the time being).
sudo dnf downgrade openssh-clients-7.7p1
This will result in the following rpms being present.
openssh-7.7p1-2.fc28.x86_64 openssh-server-7.7p1-2.fc28.x86_64 openssh-clients-7.7p1-2.fc28.x86_64
12:29 $ git pull Already up to date. ✔ ~/repos/missile_run [master|✔]
All is well now !!
