Add the remote is not working


#1


https://www.codecademy.com/en/courses/deploy-a-website/lessons/github-pages/exercises/add-remote?action=lesson_resume

I have successfully verified the remote was added yet the exercise will not continue. Any Suggestions?

$ git remote -v
origin (mysite)/github.io.git (fetch)
origin (mysite)/github.io.git (push)

I'm not sure that you have your remote done correctly. Here is what I have:

$ git remote -v                                                               
origin  https://github.com/AlbionsRefuge/AlbionsRefuge.github.io.git (fetch)  
origin  https://github.com/AlbionsRefuge/AlbionsRefuge.github.io.git (push)   
$

Thank you for the response. Here is a more accurate screenshot to what I am referring to:

If i proceed with the second command the remote origin is verified, as you can see the exercise does not recognize that I have successfully done so.

When I check on GitHub, I don't see any repositories for you. From this step: 2. Create Your Repo, I that we should expect to see a new, empty one called michaelberkowitz.github.io -- what did you see happen at that step?

Judy:
I went back to step to and created the repository, then initialized it. Can you check to see if is available again as I still can not get past section 4. Thanks in advance.


#7

I can see it now, so that's a step closer.

Sometimes it is a bit hard to get the code checker's attention after there has been a problem. :grimacing:

Try:
- closing the bash terminal using the X beside the word bash, then open it again
- restarting that exercise, the option for that is under the Get Help menu.

Lol No worries Judy. You help was great especially with an anxious novice :). I had to backtrack a bit but I was able to finish the exercise and complete the lesson. Thanks for all your help.


#9

Hey, i'm stuck in the same stage and exact error as you.. how to fix it please?


#10

I restarted the exercise but you will have to restart exercise two "create
a repo" as well in order to complete this exercise. The best advice was from Judy:
Try:
- closing the bash terminal using the X beside the word bash, then open it again
- restarting that exercise, the option for that is under the Get Help menu.
