GIT clone failing after upgrade to 2.14.4

  • 1.  GIT clone failing after upgrade to 2.14.4

    I’ve never had a problem with GIT CLONE on 2.3.5 but (I think) this is the first clone I’ve performed since upgrading.

    I am clone from a local directory to a local directory and getting the following:

    /u/u700215/zGIT-Repository/MVSDEMO>git clone /u/u700215/zGIT-Repository/MVSDEMO /u/u700215/zGIT-Repository/MVSDEMO3
    Cloning into ‘/u/u700215/zGIT-Repository/MVSDEMO3’…
    fatal: cannot run git-upload-pack ‘/u/u700215/zGIT-Repository/MVSDEMO’: EDC5129I No such file or directory.
    fatal: unable to fork
    /u/u700215/zGIT-Repository/MVSDEMO>git status
    On branch master
    nothing to commit, working tree clean
    /u/u700215/zGIT-Repository/MVSDEMO>

    I performed a git status immediately after the clone failed and you can see that the MVSDEMO repository does exist.

    Suggestions/Help please.
    Gary

    Hi Gary,
    Could you specify git version, which you use? If you recently updated git, please, check that you have installed git from this archive: git-2.14.4_b08.181016.tar.gz
    Thanks,
    Tatyana

    This looks like a problem that we have just fixed in build 8. Please, could you update it?
