GoLand import go module public repo fails with invalid version

Issue

I want to import a module I have created into another project. The source code is in GitHub, in a public repo, but I get the following error when trying to import in GoLand:

go: finding module for package github.com/ambye85/gophercises/link
go: downloading github.com/ambye85/gophercises/link v0.0.0-20200323082040-d484a876f7e8

        fatal: could not read Username for 'https://github.com': terminal prompts disabled

All the searching I have done seems to indicate that this is caused by trying to access a private repo. That is not the case here.

Does anyone know what the cause and fix is?

Solution

Can be fixed using:

$ git config --global --add url."git@github.com:".insteadOf "https://github.com/"

This problem may occur when you’re trying to authenticate with https but you have 2FA enabled. This can be solved by forcing git to use ssh for all interactions.
