When cloning onto a device that is out of space to fulfill the whole clone operation, git will report that the remove repository does not exist:

$ git clone https://github.com/mozilla/flask
Cloning into 'flask'...
remote: Repository not found.
fatal: repository 'https://github.com/mozilla/flask/' not found

This error is misleading. As an example here is what hg does for the same situation:

$ hg clone https://bitbucket.org/dholth/wheel
destination directory: wheel
requesting all changes
adding changesets
adding manifests
adding file changes
transaction abort!
failed to truncate 00changelog.i
rollback failed - please run hg recover
abort: No space left on device: /Volumes/Disk
