I'm following this DO tutorial 'Set Up Automatic Deployment with Git'. When trying to push to the Remote repo locally with the command:

git push live master

I receive:

Counting objects: 1195, done.
Delta compression using up to 8 threads.
Compressing objects: 100% (1064/1064), done.
error: failed to push some refs to 'ssh://USER@IP/var/repo/WEBSITE
t.git'

I think it may be a problem with permissions as I had to use sudo in a couple of the steps or it is maybe a novice's mistake. Any guidance to troubleshoot or a point in the right direction this would be greatly
