git push, pull, clone not working without error

I have a bitbucket repo, on rackspace centOS linux (redhat) server and the git push, pull and clone don't work without any error messages.

The version of git 1.7.x which I updated to 2.9.x and the issue remains the same.

I have tried cloning from other machines, servers with similar setup and it worked. something individually wrong here.

I will update when I find a solution.


This error is due to a bug in the last update of the NSS packages on CentOS/RHEL 6.8.

Here a few links that discuss the issue:

We have reported it to RedHat and we're waiting for them to release a fix for both CentOS and RHEL 6.8. Until then we have rolled back to the previous working versions of the NSS packages and marked the ones you had as bad so that yum will skip them and update only after newer versions of the packages are released.

Bad versions:
[root@econoline-perf]# yum versionlock list
Loaded plugins: fastestmirror, versionlock
versionlock list done

Good Versions (now installed):
[root@econoline-perf]# rpm -qa | grep nss.*3.21 | sort

I assume git has been using libraries from this package and so this should resolve the problem.

Ko Pha-Ngan/Koh Phangan Island of beauty relaxation and spirituality

Being the original full moon party island it gets a lot of tourism. As with most places in Thailand of certain fame. I prefer the yoga town of Sri Thanu where you can relax better and enjoy various holistic activities. If you stumble upon mystical creatures you can end up taking LSD or mushrooms.

I tried freediving for the first time and had been disappointed with the lack of satisfaction I got. Sure I learned some techniques for breathing and diving deeper faster. The psychology is what changes when you actually have enough oxygen but feel the need to be at the surface. In any case I felt the extra cost was not valued and would have preferred diving with tank (scuba) for about half the price to see more wildlife.

In any case this place has magic and if you get with local rythem you can get decent price and quality fruits, to continue the fruitarian lifestyle, cheaper gas than most gas stations (can be found close to the main town Thon sala)

For now I stay here, after a heartbreak I carry on and see what the rainbow can show me.

Travelling is my part time job

I have found another passion, and as with passions you tend to like the work that goes into it. Because let's face it, travel is work.

Sure, there were moments when I felt like it's work and didn't want to do it; from making the decision of where to go, how to go there, and what to do when there.

But then I found that I enjoy this work, and want to continue doing it as long as possible. The exploration of this plant has just began for me.

There are many more places I want to see and discover for myself and I am blessed with the time and financial means to do this. Mainly the savings and also the continues work I can conduct remotely from any decent internet connection (doesn't have to be very fast but solid is ideal - text file transfers as with the coding I do)

I know the places that I liked, where I will certainly return (sometimes I know when other times not sure yet). I know the places that I will visit (again, some I have a rough idea when, others I am not certain yet).

So far the journey has been a great one, filled with self-discovery, exploration of the inner and outer world, and some of the spiritual one as well. The cultures, people, foods, languages, customs and religious. Finding inner peace in nature or city chaos in rush hour traffic. Flights, overnight buses, trains, ferries, road trips in cars as well as motor bikes and many more adventures to come.

Let me know what you think about a life of travel? Would you picture yourself doing it in such a way?
Where do you recommend I visit?
