GitHub SSH keys

I am currently working on a react app and I figured it was time to commit. When i was trying to push to github, i was getting this error

Permission denied (publickey).
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

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

I tried to make a new SSH key but that didn’t work, and I currently don’t have any SSH keys in my github profile. If anyone could provide me with a step by step process on how to fix this error so I can push my work to github, that would be appreciated.


What’s your system? The same error hit me few times and at the end it was keyring fault.
Anyway, here some solved topic:
SO - GitHub error message
SO - Cannot push to git repository using bitbucket
AskUbuntu - Ubuntu 16.04 ssh: sign_and_send_pubkey: signing failed: agent refused operation ( check all the answers, not just the accepted one)

You can follow the below link to create a ssh key and add it in github profile
