Why can't I clone my remote repository onto my other machine?

#1

Hey friends, I’m trying to copy my remote repository that I originally put up on github with my laptop, and now I want to work on it with my desktop. I’m new to git & github and don’t understand most of it. But the first thing I did was create the folder on my desktop. Went into that folder with git bash and then did git clone followed by the url. This is what I got.

Marian@Marian-PC MINGW64 ~/Desktop/codeProjects/kaneConcrete
$ git clone https://github.com/spabsa/Kane-Concrete-Construction.git
Cloning into ‘Kane-Concrete-Construction’…
remote: Enumerating objects: 24, done.
remote: Counting objects: 100% (24/24), done.
remote: Compressing objects: 100% (19/19), done.
error: RPC failed; curl 56 SSL read: error:1408F10B:SSL routines:SSL3_GET_RECORD :wrong version number, errno 0
fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly
fatal: early EOF
fatal: unpack-objects failed

can someone give me a simplified explanation on what’s going on and how to fix it? Thank you:)

I also am a beginner to Git and GitHub.

What do you use for editing the website? Most IDEs integrate with GitHub.

Are you familiar with GitHub Desktop? If you install it and then click on Clone or download in your spabsa/Kane-Concrete-Construction: Website for construction company and then click on Open in Desktop then it will clone the git and open it in the desktop.

Also this is very helpful.

I use Sublime text for my editor. I also have GitHub Desktop, but I’m trying to learn git bash instead of using a GUI. Thank you for the link:)
