Subject: Issue: "Could not access submodule" error when pulling recursively with Git 2.22.0

Message-ID: <> (raw)


"Could not access submodule" error when pulling recursively with Git 2.22.0.
This issue causes if there is submodule in submodule.

At first, we reported this problem for Git for Windows:
But we received the answer that it was reproduced on Linux too.

Also, the same problem is described here:


Please use my simple test repository to reproduce the problem:

It is just an empty repository with one submodule ( 
and one submodule of submodule (

git clone
cd example2361/
git submodule init
git submodule update
git pull --recurse-submodules=true


"git --recurse-submodules=true" command fails with message "Could not access submodule":

$ git --recurse-submodules=true
Fetching submodule example2361M1
Could not access submodule 'example2361M2'


All submodules are successfully updated by "git --recurse-submodules=true" command.


Git version 2.20.1 does not have this problem. 
So we had to downgrade Git to work with submodules.

Best regards,
