Linking Github results in "Error: An unknown error occurred"


#1

I have a very basic personal github account with no repositories configured. I just installed Atom and tried the linking process and I get “Error: An unknown error occurred”.
Please let me know if you have suggestions on testing.


#2

In github, Github for Atom shows up in my “Authorized Oauth Apps”


#3

Forgot to mention, Atom version 1.20.0 on Mac OS Sierra 10.20.6


#4

The github package currently doesn’t have any functionality beyond viewing pull requests, so there’s nothing to do with it if you don’t have a repo.


#5

If I create a repo, would you expect that the authentication portion would work and show me the available repos. I just did create a repo and did the authentication again, but still get the same error.


#6

Apologies, I misspoke. I meant to say that the GitHub tab has no functionality beyond pull requests. The github package is responsible for both the Git and GitHub tabs.

Please post a screenshot of Atom when you have the repo open.
