I had committed my change locally, but I am unable to push to origin master I am running the below-mentioned command:

$ git remote add origin git@github.com:username/test.git

I am seeing the below-mentioned command.
Fatal: remote origin already exists.
On running 
$ git push -u origin master
I am seeing the below-mentioned error
ERROR: Repository not found.
Fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly.

I want to know why is git push origin master not working?

This error can be solved in two methods.

The first method is given below:
Git remote set-url
Example;- git remote set-url origin git@github.com:username/test.git
The next method is given below:
You must alter the origin setting. Edit .git/config in the project root, like the one mentioned below:
[remote “origin”]
Url = git://user@dev.foo.com/git/repos/path
Fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*
In case the remote is local, the following command can be used.
[remote “origin’]
Fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*

In case the git push origin master does not work, you must edit the file with the preferred editor and modify the URL = setting to the modified location. Expecting that the new repository is properly created and there is the proper URL, you can push and pull from the new remote location.
