Push error: internal API unreachable/pre-receive hook declined


I’ve been using GitLab to write an iOS app. I’ve successfully pushed to the repository many times. Today I had a merge conflict for the first time, which I resolved. But since then, I get this error every time I try to push anything:

remote: GitLab: Failed to authorize your Git request: internal API unreachable
To https://git.seedup.de/“myRepository.git”
! [remote rejected] test -> test (pre-receive hook declined)
error: failed to push some refs to ‘https://git.seedup.de/“myRepository.git”

Can anyone tell me what this means/how I can resolve it? I’d really appreciate the help.

I have the same issue now. How did you solve it?

It’s been a few months, I don’t really remember. But I know that I tried a few things, and eventually the error was resolved.

  • GitLab was down for a few hours around the time the error occurred.
  • I updated every program I was using for the project.
  • I recloned the repository.

Sorry I can’t be of more help!

It seems that it was temporary gitlab.com issue. After 5 or 6 retries changes were pushed successfully.
