Undebatably the most useful solution ever to the most non-sensical error message ever.
thank u! work perfect
ERRRR… WRONG see accepted answer
This worked for me
Thanks. You just save me.
yes,I solve mine with this,thanks
To those saying this answer is wrong: It isn’t. The poster absolutely got themselves into trouble in the first place with:
$ git init $ git add <files> $ git commit -m "First commit from new computer" $ git remote add origin https://github.com/roparzhhemon/myremoterepo.git
All of that should have been:
$ git clone https://github.com/roparzhhemon/myremoterepo.git
which would have automatically copied the contents of the remote repo and added it as the remote origin. You’re not meant to be doing that by hand.
If there are local files to add that aren’t in the remote repo, those can be added after the clone operation. Then the history won’t be divergent, the new commit will have the HEAD of the remote repo as its parent, and git push will go right through.
The key is right in the name of the remote: “origin”. It’s meant to be the source of your local repo’s copy of the history, not the destination for it.
The accepted answer may be the solution to this problem, when it’s already happened, but it’s much better to never get into that situation in the first place.
I had just created a README.md while initiating a new Repositoy. after adding remote origin the issue rised on git pull. but this is really helful to solve my problem.
This solution also works for me thanks!
God bless you man.
This worked for me too!!!
Thank you! It works in my case.
Thanks it worked for me
Yes it worked…!! Thanks a ton
Well you can try and do
make the local repository recognize the remote
git remote add orign <giturl>
git branch --set-upstream-to=origin/master
#sync the branches
if any conflict resolve and continue
push to remote
this work for me…
git clone <Repo>
git pull --allow-unrelated-histories origin master
git push -u origin master
and it works
Worked perfectly in VS Code
I got into this problem following a guide book that started with a local git repo and then tried to show how to go remote with a github account. Left out was all the .ssh key stuff and this. Thanks. This answer worked for me, is much cleaner and doesn’t seem to be leaving me open to the problem versioning is supposed to prevent against.
if you already did a pull and you came up with master and origin/master but can’t merge them, the following command can help you:
git merge origin/master --allow-unrelated-histories
its working thanks man
