Hello, Monica.

The error message you're encountering, "Host key verification failed," typically occurs when there is an issue with the SSH key or the host key verification for the Bitbucket repository. Here are some steps you can take to troubleshoot and resolve this issue:

Check SSH Key Configuration: Ensure that the SSH key you added to your Bitbucket account is correctly configured. Make sure you added the public key to your Bitbucket account and that the private key is available on your local machine. Verify SSH Agent:

Check if the SSH agent is running and has your SSH key loaded
