Thank you,

  I did delete the package_name repo in my AUR git directory, but I still
cannot create the new clamav-LTS repo. I get the following error:

$ git clone ssh://aur@aur.archlinux.org/clamav-LTS.git
Cloning into 'clamav-LTS'...
git-upload-pack: invalid repository name: clamav-LTS
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.

  When I accidentally used package_name it worked, e.g.

$ git clone ssh://aur@aur.archlinux.org/package_name.git
Cloning into 'package_name'...
warning: You appear to have cloned an empty repository.

  Now I can't create the clamav-LTS repo as an empty repo the same way? Why?
