Failed git push - " ! [remote rejected] master -> master (pre-receive hook declined)"

After a move to a new server (more memory faster drive) users can pull but not push. Error here:

! [remote rejected] master → master (pre-receive hook declined)

This happens with or without branch protection turned on and that are not nor have ever been any pre-recieve hooks in this Gitlab instance (Gitlab 13.2.10). I can not even find a log that shows the failing push.

Any assistance would be appreciated.


This for me was resolved by upgrading above 13.2.10 I could find no other way to resolve.
