#742 Unusual error when doing key prove to my own server

Opened by softinio on December 11, 2022

I have pijul installed on my macbook and on my VPS server which is running debian Linux 11.

When I want to do pijul key prove <my login>@<myserver ssh domain> I get this strange error after entering my key password:

error: The argument '--repository <REPO_PATH>' requires a value but none was supplied

For more information try --help
Error: channel closed

Everything works as expected when doing a pijul push to the same server using the same user and domain. Also pijul key prove works as expected when using nest.

Above issue only when I use my own server.

Any help or guidance appreciated. Wonder if its a bug, the error is almost as if I am running pijul git even though I am not.

I did try running the command prefixed with RUST_LOG="pijul=debug,libpijul::apply=debug,libpijul::output=debug" but nothing stood out other than above message.
