I recognize that this seems like a beginner issue, but posting here is my last resort: I’ve tried numerous solutions online, and nothing seems to work.
Clearly, something is off with branches. When I create changes to my repo on the browser, I can pull the changes in Mac terminal no problem.
However, when I make changes in the Terminal, adding/committing/pushing does not work. Git status gives me the message:
On branch master Your branch is up to date with 'origin/master'. nothing to commit, working tree clean
I’ve tried lots of methods online for resolving this, including:
git checkout HEAD,
git fetch --all \ git reset --hard origin/master,
git branch --set-upstream-to origin/master
None of these have resolved the problem for me. I would be very grateful for any help that someone could provide, and I will try to respond quickly in case you are wondering what the output of different commands are on my local config.
Thanks so much!
