Gitea/Gogs - Git - No such device or address - Debugging

I’m posting this so that users who may run into this can have some help debugging.

Sample error from clone step:

Initialized empty Git repository in /drone/src/.git/
+ git fetch origin +refs/heads/master:
fatal: could not read Username for '': No such device or address

Some starter steps to help diagnose what could be happening:

  1. create a new repo and add the following content into a new .drone.yml
  2. activate the repo
  3. cause a build to trigger
  4. look at results of debug step to see if curl can access your gitea install (if not, then it is likely a networking issue, perhaps your drone install isn’t on same network as your gitea install)
kind: pipeline
name: default

  disable: true

- name: debug
  image: alpine
  - env
  - ls -lah
  - apk add --no-cache git curl
  - curl -v $DRONE_GIT_HTTP_URL
