Git / Bitbucket – The remote end hung up unexpectedly – Early EOF – index-pack failed at exactly 1GB

 

Suddenly my repository failed to clone:

git clone https://myuser@myurl.nl/scm/myproject/myrepo.git

Cloning into ‘myrepo’…

remote: Counting objects: 332184, done.

remote: Compressing objects: 100% (59662/59662), done.

fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly020.57 MiB | 9.89 MiB/s

fatal: early EOF

fatal: index-pack failed

 

It failed at exactly 1GB.

I found the fix at: https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Bitbucket-questions/My-git-clone-stops-at-1GB/qaq-p/70773

 

It was caused by a limit in nginx reverse proxy, after increasing the limit to 2GB I could clone again.
