Git Error: Permission denied (publickey)


The other day I was trying to fetch the changes from the remote repo and the following error has been displayed:

$ git fetch origin

Agent admitted failure to sign using the key.
# Permission denied (publickey).

In this case the reason was that I've changed / switched between two different ssh keys. However if you got similar issues the problem has been fixed by telling ssh to use the key by running the following command:

$ ssh-add

That's it - problem solved :)
