I suspect that you haven't really removed the big files from history. Do a git
log --name-status and have a good look to see if the big files were added
(A) in any commits. Perhaps they were added in an earlier commit (their fix
will only work if the files were added in the very last commit).
If you do find an older [commit-id] where they were added, do an
interactive rebase back to the commit (git rebase -i [commit-id]~1) and
select that you want to edit the commit. Remove the files from the old
commit, and check git log again to make sure there's no trace of the big
files in your history. Then try pushing again.
If still at loss, you better take this up with GitHub. You can contact
them via their 'contact a human' button at the bottom of the page.
