Question about permissions for django.git

Folks -

I am following the instructions from .

However, when I try to 'git fetch' the source repo, I get 'Permission denied'

PS C:\Users\chris\Documents\Github>  git clone
Cloning into 'django'...
remote: Enumerating objects: 1, done.
remote: Counting objects: 100% (1/1), done.
remote: Total 465879 (delta 0), reused 0 (delta 0), pack-reused 465878
Receiving objects: 100% (465879/465879), 197.61 MiB | 3.93 MiB/s, done.
Resolving deltas: 100% (339992/339992), done.
Updating files: 100% (6412/6412), done.
PS C:\Users\chris\Documents\Github> cd django
PS C:\Users\chris\Documents\Github\django> git remote add upstream
PS C:\Users\chris\Documents\Github\django> git fetch upstream Permission denied (publickey).
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.

I have tried this on Linux Mint also, and get the same error. Do I need to be added to some permissions list?

Thanks in advance for any help.
