We have a public repo. We changed auth method to "Authorize as GitHub App", installed the app and granted needed permissions (see file attached).
Error fetching YAML configuration file from the repository. Make sure AppVeyor is authorized to access your gitHub account: GitHub authorization required.

Here's the build:

Thank you!

    Hi Constantine,

    On Account -> Authorizations page do "Revoke access" and then "Import existing installations". That should do the trick.

    Hi Feodor,

    There was no "Revoke access" button on that screen, so I just hit "Import existing installations" and it did work!

    Thank you for your help!
