Beginning the example scripts tutorial (git clone)

I apologize for what might be a basic question, but I'm having issues going through the tutorial for downloading and using local data. Here's what I'm trying to follow:

But git clone returns the following error:

Cloning into 'illustris_python'...
The authenticity of host ' (' can't be established.
RSA key fingerprint is SHA256:nThbg6kXUpJWGl7E1IGOCspRomTxdCARLviKw6E5SY8.
Are you sure you want to continue connecting (yes/no)? yes
Warning: Permanently added ',' (RSA) to the list of known hosts. Permission denied (publickey).
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

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

I have never used github before, am I supposed to set up an account there before this step?

HI Jacob,

This is a public repository, so you don't need an account. Perhaps simpler with the command git clone which I took from this tutorial.

That looks like it worked, thank you so much!
