You receive the following error from Git

fatal: 'origin' does not appear to be a git repository
fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly


This is typically because you have not set the origin alias on your Git repository.


To resolve, do the following:

git remote add origin URL_TO_YOUR_REPO

This will add an alias in your .git/config file for the remote clone/push/pull site URL. This URL can be found on your repository Overview page.

If this doesn't resolve your issue, please read over our Bitbucket Cloud 101 guide for detailed setup and configuration guides for Git.
