When working with local git repos, whenever I add a remote repo on github and then try to pull down the master from remote to local, I get errors about local repo not being on the same branch as the remote, or more recently this error:
fatal: refusing to merge unrelated histories
I think in the past I’ve done a ‘reset –hard’ like described here, but this didn’t work for me this time, I got the same error about ‘unrelated histories’
Turns out this might be related to a change in git behavior, as described here.
git pull github master --allow-unrelated-histories
and then followed with:
git push github master
fixed my issue.
