Unable to find organization when starting new Orb

I’m following https://circleci.com/docs/2.0/creating-orbs/ to start a new Orb, but I’m stuck at the very first step:

circleci namespace create github-maven-deploy github bbottema-circleci

Resulting in the following error:

Error: Unable to find organization bbottema-circleci of vcs-type GITHUB: Must have member permission.: the organization ‘bbottema-circleci’ under ‘GITHUB’ VCS-type does not exist. Did you misspell the organization or VCS?

I have registered an organisation with that name on both Github and CircleCI and I’m admin on both and have enabled “Uncertified Orbs”. I can’t figure out what else I’m supposed to do.

What am I missing?

Any chance you’re using a “project token” instead of a “user token” in your CLI setup?

I don’t know what went wrong, but I recreated my personal user token and this time it worked. Did the same thing as before… strange.
