I get the error:

$ git push origin
updating 'refs/heads/master'
  from 757f40fca50a99377e437949ee77b983c8cd6087
  to   78f4ab6b89fca3086b9c9471b40c11c23fbb6142

unpack unpacker exited with error code
ng refs/heads/master n/a (unpacker error)

when trying to push right now.

Usually this means that the objects/f8 directory was created by someone
else when they did a push and now has the wrong permissions on it now.
