Git no Key

ssh-add -k ~/.ssh/id_rsa

How to fix

I fixed this by entering the following commands:

$ ssh-agent bash

This creates a new bash process that allows you to add private keys. When adding a new private key you will be prompted for the passphrase once and only once.

nd then:

$ ssh-add /home/username/.ssh/id_rsa
Enter passphrase for /home/username/.ssh/id_rsa: 
Identity added: /home/username/.ssh/id_rsa (/home/username/.ssh/id_rsa)

...where username is your username. You can do the same using $USER variable:

$ ssh-add /home/$USER/.ssh/id_rsa

Alternatively, just use ~ for your home directory.

$ ssh-add ~/.ssh/id_rsa

And the problem was fixed.
