Trying to add a new project => Error adding SSH key to Bitbucket repository

I have added a new Bitbucket (private) repo and am now trying to create a new AppVeyor project. When I add the project I'm getting the above message.

In DevTools I see:
app-e3672b4cad.min.js:9 POST 500

What I've tried:
I've revoked access and it automatically re-authenticates. No impact.
Ensured that the Bitbucket account (used for OAuth 1.0) has Admin rights on the Bitbucket repo. No impact.

Other thoughts:
I do see the following message on Bitbucket, Settings, User and group access:
"Repository access has changed
In order to improve user privacy, we have made changes to Bitbucket Cloud invitations. You must now enter an email address to add users who don’t currently have access to this account."

Does Appveyor have an email account which needs to be given Admin access to the Bitbucket repo?

    Sorry for the trouble. It is related to the breaking changes in Bitbucket OAuth 1.0 API. AppVeyor fix is coming in a day or so. To unblock you right now, we can reset your Bitbucket authorization (with your permission). Then you need to go to Account > Authorizations and re-authorize Bitbucket. Please let us know if you want us to go ahead and reset your Bitbucket authorization -- after clone will not work for all projects until you re-authorize Bitbucket.
