Error - [email protected] Permission denied (publickey)


$ git pull
[email protected]: Permission denied (publickey).
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

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

However I have my ssh publickey on the local machine and has already added it to GitHub keys.

Then I checked the error logs as is suggested in [1]:

Luckily I found a solution here [2]:

git remote set-url origin [email protected]:your_git_id/your_repo_name.git
