This is expected. We tried to use a credential that was rejected by the
server, so we told all of the helpers it was invalid. You can try
running GIT_TRACE_CURL=1 to see the HTTP conversation. There will be an
HTTP 401 with the authentication failure, though it may not tell you
anything more useful than that.

git-credential-store is meant to be used interactively, to insert and
erase credentials as they're grabbed from the terminal.

It sounds more like you want to just have a stored credential that you
try to use. You could do that with a custom helper. E.g., something like
this in your ~/.gitconfig:

  [credential "https://example.com";]
  helper = "!f() { test $1 = get && echo password=$(cat /path/with/password); }; f"
