I have worked with TFS before. So was trying out Git with Visual Studio 2019 as a practice. I know how to stage and commit repositories, but haven't worked with branches and remotes. So I followed the steps given in here - https://stackoverflow.com/questions/36228101/using-github-in-visual-studio-update-fork-from-upstream-master
to sync the latest version/commits of original remote repository to my repo.
I could successfully get the latest commits to my local repo, but was unable to commit it to my forked repo under my github account with the error - 'error encountered while pushing to the remote repository rejected master (Permission Denied)'
I tried reading other questions on google but was not able to resolve.

Use forks when you want to extend an existing repository. You can do whatever you want with the fork without disturbing the ancestor repository. Use branches when want to add features to an existing repository while keeping tight control over what's added
to the main repository.
