Github Error: ERROR: Storage server temporarily offline. fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Recently, i got the following error when trying to clone:

ERROR: Storage server temporarily offline. See http://status.github.com for GitHub system status. fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights and the repository exists.

Error on Repository page: This repository is temporarily unavailable.

I also got this error when i visited the repository page on Github:

This repository is temporarily unavailable.

The backend storage is temporarily offline. Usually this means the storage server is undergoing maintenance. Please contact support if the problem persists.

I emailed Github and they quickly were able to tell me that this happens when forking a particular repository failed.

Solution

The solution for this particular problem is to just delete the fork and refork it again. I did so and it worked again.
