HTTP status code 401 means "not authorised" [1] which (supposedly)
means that while the web server was able to successfully verify your
identity, the type of access performed by the Git client when fetching
has been denied for you by certain web server settings.  Also web
server could have denied your from accessing specific filesystem path

I would raise web server's debug level and inspect its error log after
failed fetches to see what request the Git client sends and how the web
server denies it.
