Push to "fork" Git Error - src refspec master does not match any. failed to push some refs to 'https://

I understand that similar topics have been posted on this site many times before. I read them and tried all the suggestions. Somehow, I still cannot successfully push the local code back to the "fork" in GitHub using Git Bash.

I "fork"ed a project, which is vlerdas-subscribe, in the GitHub by clicking the Fork button.

I cloned the fork into the current directory in my laptop using Git Bash (I gave my GitHub username while cloning)

I added some code to one of the project files.

I had problems when I used the command git push origin master while pushing the entire project to the "fork". Some nice person on this site told me that the current version of the Git bash has a bug -- (for https) it does not prompt for username and password. Therefore, I followed his advice and did the following; but I got "src refspec master does not match any. failed to push some refs to ..."

vhaiswjenlim@VACOLTJENLIM ~ (master)
$ git remote rm origin

vhaiswjenlim@VACOLTJENLIM ~ (master)
$ git remote add origin https://{username}:{password}@github.com/{username}/vlerdas-subscribe.git

vhaiswjenlim@VACOLTJENLIM ~ (master)
$ git push origin master
error: src refspec master does not match any.
error: failed to push some refs to 'https://{username}:{password}@github.com/{username}/vlerdas-    subscribe.git'

I saw some suggestions to answer similar topics on this site; therefore, I tried those suggestions but nothing seems to work. I copied my command window below:

vhaiswjenlim@VACOLTJENLIM ~ (master)
$ git branch

vhaiswjenlim@VACOLTJENLIM ~ (master)
$ git show-ref

vhaiswjenlim@VACOLTJENLIM ~ (master)
$ git commit -m "Initial commit."

On branch master

You've added the wrong origin.

Remove it and add the correct one:

$ git remote rm origin
$ git remote add origin https://github.com/<your-username>/vlerdas-subscribe.git

where <your-username> should be replaced by your github username (eg. John).

Note that you also have to be in the root folder of the repository to do this.
