I use vim 8.2.3458 without any SQL specific plug-ins. Whenever I try to edit a SQL file the following error message keeps popping up:

SQLComplete:The dbext plugin must be loaded for dynamic SQL completion

When this message shows the editor freezes for about two seconds, making the edition of SQL files a rather painful experience.

I thus experimented adding a pointer to the plugin at GitHub in the .vimrc file:

Bundle 'vim-scripts/dbext'

However, when I run :PluginInstall Vundle returns an authentication error trying to access the dbext repository.

How can I get rid of the SQLComplete error?

You forgot to add .vim to the end of the plugin name. try:

Bundle 'vim-scripts/dbext.vim'
