Does `git remote -v` in the repo directory show https://github.com/...
or git using github.com:... or ssh://... URLs?

Can you add the new SSH key on <https://github.com/settings/keys> and
check ~/.ssh/config to make sure that it's used when connecting to
github.com? You can verify that the SSH part of the stack works by
running `ssh git using github.com`:

Hi <username>! You've successfully authenticated, but GitHub does not
provide shell access.
Connection to github.com closed.

This sounds like it's using an https:// remote URL, not ssh. But I
might be mistaken.
