About two weeks ago, a weekly build that has been working fine started failing during the
checkout step with this error:
Using SSH Config Dir /home/circleci/.ssh Cloning into '.'... Warning: Permanently added the RSA host key for IP address '22.214.171.124' to the list of known hosts. Load key "/home/circleci/.ssh/id_rsa": invalid format firstname.lastname@example.org: Permission denied (publickey). fatal: Could not read from remote repository.
I noticed the project had a “deploy key” configured in the CircleCI webUI, but since CircleCI for that project does not write to the project, I tried deleteing the “deploy key” to see if it would help. (The GitHub config shows no deploy keys for this project).
I’m at a loss as to why the checkout is failing. This is a public project: https://github.com/sonatype/nexus-public
Here’s is the latest failed CircleCI build: https://app.circleci.com/pipelines/github/sonatype/nexus-public/224/workflows/e61a60b0-9c55-4d55-89c9-6c01df73800e/jobs/245
