Having trouble backing up Teams account repl to github

Problem description:
The GitHub GUI on my Teams repl is not fully functional. I have some repls that I brought over to Teams and the GUI will let me commit new changes but it does not update to GitHub and it will not push new changes. It has the correct account and whatnot. I had another Teams repl that I successfully updated and pushed to GitHub but some of the repls I transferred to Teams don’t ever give me the option to Push changes.

The Repl.it GitHub GUI shows the changes to commit and I can commit but then the GUI won’t go any farther. There is no option to push. If I try and use Git on the command line I can tell it to push changes but then I get an error such as:

warning: unable to access 'venv/lib/python3.8/site-packages/debugpy/_vendored/pydevd/pydevd_attach_to_process/linux_and_mac/.gitignore': Too many levels of symbolic links

warning: unable to access 'venv/lib/python3.8/site-packages/debugpy/_vendored/pydevd/_pydevd_frame_eval/.gitignore': Too many levels of symbolic links

On branch initial-development

I tried adjusting a .gitignore file to be more specifc and also even left it empty but that didn’t seem to fix anything.

Expected behavior:

I expected the GitHub GUI to work like it does on a normal Hacker account and I expected when I pushed changes that it would update to GitHub.

Actual behavior:

It does not update to GitHub (push). I get errors involving too many symbolic links. I am wondering if it has something to do with some of these repls getting transferred from a regular account to a Team account and perhaps the file path is too convoluted or something.

Try adding venv/* to your .gitignore file, then running git rm --cached -r venv.
