We mirror various Github repositories on our Gitlab server to ensure their availability. However, last Friday mirroring suddenly stopped working. I tried clicking the update icon for a manual update, but the error persisted, even when I deleted and re-created the mirror operation (under Settings → Repository → Mirroring Repositories).

This is the error message:

Error: The mirror user is not allowed to perform any git operations.

I can delete and re-create the mirrored repository, and the initial data transfer from the remote repository works, but eventually the error re-appears.

As it turned out the user "Administrator" had been blocked, which prevents the account from accessing git repositories. Hence the error message.

To resolve the problem all we needed to do was unblock the user again (in the Admin Area click Overview → Users, select the user in question, then click the "Unblock" button).
