GitHub: You can't sign up because login 'username' is already used by an existing user

Hello

I am having trouble signing in with my github account since switching to two-factor authentication on my github account.

I get the error message:

You’re not authorized to access this page.
Reason: You can’t sign up because login ‘stickeraugust’ is already used by an existing user.

I have seen others having the same issue on here but it is always resolved with private interaction so I don’t know how to fix it. I have tried revoking access for SonarCloud on my github account and trying again without any success.

Can someone help me?

Anyone? :worried:

@Justin_Allen Thanks a lot Justin!

I am seeing lots of threads asking this question and people asking if there is something they can do on their end to fix it. Do we just need to let someone (@Justin_Allen ?) know if this is happening?
