Development Tools Introduction to Git GitHub and Other Remote Repositories Pushing Commits to GitHub

Why do I get "fatal: unable to access 'https://': Could not resolve host: info" when I use git push -u origin master?

I am on a Techdegree and already have a github.com account. When I use the command line prompts from the video, I get the following:

treehouse:~/workspace$ cd medals                                                                 
treehouse:~/workspace/medals$ git remote add origin https://github.com/abbeymo/medals.git        
fatal: remote origin already exists.                                                             
treehouse:~/workspace/medals$ git push -u origin master                                          
fatal: unable to access 'https://': Could not resolve host: info

It looks like Git might be misconfigured so that it's trying to connect to a host named info rather than github.com.

Try running git remote show origin and see if you get the URL that you expect. You may need to run git remote set-url to change the saved URL.
