Dropped support for unencrypted Git protocol on GitHub

  • On March 15, 2022 GitHub disabled the unencrypted Git protocol git:// permanently. This change affects packages in Buildroot and Yocto releases that are still using the mentioned protocol for GitHub resulting in the following error message:

    1. fatal: remote error: The unauthenticated git protocol on port 9418 is no longer supported

    The Git config can be set to globally use the encrypted protocol https:// instead of git://:

    1. git config --global url."https://".insteadOf git://
