Stuck on publishing with github it I just created a repository and a readme file and opened the github desktop.

and when I try to publish to github it says Repository creation failed (name already exists on this account.) This is for the Front End Dev Techdegree. I have also asked for help on the slack channel.????

I'm re-doing this section as I'm running into similar. This is an integral part of the degree, as you need to upload everything through GIT for review etc, so best to know it well IMO. Try deleting the files from the DT & Online Git and start with this vid for a refresher. I think I might have set the directories up wrong, and maybe you did the same?
