Make sure you have an username set on your gerrit account at http://gerrit.omnirom.org
Then, make sure it is set properly in your git config by running the following command:
git config --global review.gerrit.omnirom.org.username <your username here>
Another thing to check is that you have added your SSH public key to Gerrit
