Error Message: Error encountered while cloning the remote repository: Response status code does not indicate success: 404 (Not Found).

You will get this error message when you are trying to clone a GitHub private repository from your Visual Studio IDE.

Eventually, every time GitHub returns 404 error for all authentication issues. It means, there will be an authentication problem whenever you occur this issue.

To solve this problem, please cross verify with your credential manager about your credentials like is this storing GitHub credentials of the repository you are trying to clone? For this go to Credential Manager by typing in your start search windows and check in General Credentials whether having valid credentials or not. Surely, it will solve your issue.

Happy Coding 🙂
