Hi, I get above error when I try to do pull from my gitlab project.
I’ve done following steps to no avail:

  1. remove old ~/.ssh/known_hosts file
  2. do git pull , to update known_hosts with new ECDSA key
    Even after above step, it still does not work.
    I though maybe the issue is with my ssh package, I tried cloning a open source package from github, I was able to clone it. Then I tried cloning a open source repo from gitlab, it gave me the same error.
    Can any one point me in any direction to debug this issue?
