Is the network connection working correctly on your Raspberry Pi?

I have just tried downloading the python 2 repository to my Pi using "git clone https://github.com/abelectronicsuk/ABElectronics_Python_Libraries.git" and it worked correctly.  You do not have to add a username and password after the command if you are copying the repository onto your Raspberry Pi.

If you keep having trouble using git clone then the other option is to use wget to download the zip file and extract it with the following commands:

wget https://github.com/abelectronicsuk/ABElectronics_Python_Libraries/archive/master.zip

unzip master.zip
