I teach a stats course using R via github classroom. Students had been using Rstudio.cloud successfully the first few weeks of the course, but over the last 2 weeks many have have lost the ability to push changes to github. They can still clone repositories and (mostly) commit, but attempts to push do not work. This seesm to only affect new repositories/projects (old ones still work fine).
They typically get requests for passwords (which I assume is just a relic from github allowing passwords), but this is happening even if new personal access tokens are made and checked or git credentials are updated. I've tried pushing from the terminal window, resetting PAT, resetting git name and email, etc but with no luck.
Error messages include
fatal: unable to auto-detect email address (got 'rstudio-user@application-5934149-deployment-13603720-g4bn8.(none)' (still observed after multiple attempts to input git identity)
git push window:
error: unable to read askpass response from 'rpostback-askpass'
fatal: could not read Username for "https://github.com": No such device or address
Has anyone else had issues recently, or any thoughts on these errors?
