Solution. Upgrade git on CentOS 6
First, confirm that you have specific version of git:
git --version git version 1.7.1
Now, upgrade git on Centos 6 to more recent version:
sudo yum install epel-release sudo yum install https://centos6.iuscommunity.org/ius-release.rpm sudo yum install yum-plugin-replace sudo yum replace git --replace-with git2u
Now you have a more recent
git version which will likely have no error mentioned above.
