An Error of 'failed to push some refs' when pushing to Remote repo from Local Machine

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

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
