Can't clone remote git repository with EGit

I am trying to clone remote git repository with Egit, via https protocol.
I followed this online tutorial.

When I insert URI: https://username@host:port/repositorypath, password and click NEXT,
I am getting this error message:

Cannot list the available branches.
Reason:
Exception caught during execution of ls-remote command.


How can I clone this repo?

Answer

It sounds like Egit is looking for an ssl certificate and refusing to function without it. A good fix to make the problem go away and stay away: Window→Preferences→Team→Git→Configuration→New Entry→http.sslverify=false.

That should take care of it.
