It is caused by this : User storage user=users[0];

You try to assign to user the first element of the users array but you can't access an empty array.

If you want to push your object into the array you can use array.push().

  • Do User storage user = User("hey) then users.push(user).

  • it is giving me the following error: Type struct Mycontract.User memory is not implicitly convertible to expected type struct Mycontract.User storage pointer. User storage user= User("hey"); ^----------------------------^
