Sorry of this is OT, but we are without the IT expertise to handle the following issue, so I am posting here with a hope for a step-by-step if possible.
When I attempted to go through the update process last week I had the following error when invoking
git remote show origin
The unauthenticated git protocol on port 9418 is no longer supported.
Please see https://github.blog/2021-09-01-improving-git-protocol-security-github/ for
It seems that I should navigate to a particular directory (?) and invoke the following:
git config --global url."firstname.lastname@example.org:".insteadOf git://github.com/
As an amateur I am somewhat nervous about rewriting things whole-scale.
If anyone has gone through this process and is willing to share, it would be most appreciated.
