I am unable to clone HTTPS repositories. I can clone SSH repos fine, but not HTTPS repos. I cannot test the GIT protocol since I am behind a corporate firewall.
This is what I am trying to do:
$ git clone https://github.com/nvie/gitflow.git
Cloning into gitflow...
fatal: Unable to find remote helper for 'https'
I have so far tried the following (based on Google searches)
Purging and installing Git through apt-get
Installing build-deps for Git through apt-get
Installing curl dev libraries
Installing expat libraries
Downloading Git source and building using:
./configure --prefix=/usr --with-curl --with-expat
Also tried pointing configure at curl binary (./configure --prefix=/usr --with-curl=/usr/bin/curl)
I have tried everything I can find on the internet with no luck. Can anyone help me?
Git version = 126.96.36.199
