It appears that Git is unable to push the newly set upstream branch to the GitHub repo. From what I’m reading, this is because the file
.git/config is only local and doesn’t get pushed.
Is there some way I can change the upstream branch via the website or either the CLI or Desktop clients? Or would pushing through Git via SSH solve the problem?
I couldn’t get SSH keys working since
eval "$(ssh-agent -s)" does nothing on Windows.
