Installation of breakdancer by cloning the sourcecode (and subsequent building the code) fails because the submodule "build-common" can't be cloned.

I am following the instruction from the install.MD txt file present in the breakdancer-master.zip file that can be downloaded from the breakdancer github page.

The command I use is : git clone --recursive https://github.com/genome/breakdancer.git

The error I get is :

The command worked fine for me. It must be an issue with a firewall or your internet connection, though sometimes the issue is on the server (github) side. I would suggest you try another machine or just try the same command again to see if you can figure out what is happening.

I'll also try to clone the project from another location.
