Okay so basically if you see on the above message it asks you to proceed with typing yes or no and I decided to type yes basically and it now send the right message.
I guess I should have done this before posting on this forum!
Thanks for looking at this.
After going through this article =>
On the Git configuring step and after I type in "cat ~/.ssh/id_rsa.pub" and put the whole 4 lines that come back as a result to my github account.
I run this => "ssh -T email@example.com" but the message that comes back is this =>
"The authenticity of host 'github.com (184.108.40.206)' can't be established.
ECDSA key fingerprint is SHA256:adslkjalskdaslkjdalka(etc).
Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no/[fingerprint])?"
Don't mind the ip and SHA256 number I changed them for this post cause I am not sure if I should or not so I did.
So I don't get the "Hi excid3! You've successfully authenticated, but GitHub does not provide shell access."
that the article describes.
I have followed the procedure step by step.
Would you know what's wrong? I sm running ubuntu 20.4 Focal
Thanks in advance!
