Trouble downloading Android Source code

After a lot of time without being unable to sync any git repository, with a unable to get https helper error message. I encountered with a blog post that suggested to upgrade git. So look no more on the web, update and build from source your git. After retry, if problem is not fixed then start searching again on the web. Check out this link to upgrade your git http://www.barregren.se/blog/how-install-git-source-ubuntu I have Ubuntu and had the git from the Ubuntu repository (you know the one you get with apt-get) well forget about it. Go ahead get the version directly from source and build/install. It is better that way, at least in my case it fixed it all. Now I am a happy camper, trying to build android from source for my old phone, oh yes!
