No need to repeat this in each first post.

May be `git update-server-info` command is not run after pushing to the
server repo? This is needed for dumb protocols like HTTP to work, see

There's no easy answer as what is fetched from the remote and what is
changed locally after fetching heavily depends on what has been told to
Git to do.
In the simplest case when you only consider the new data of a single
branch (say, you fetched the new data from the remote "master" branch
and this operation routinely updated the local "origin/master" branch),
you can just peer into the output of
$ git log -1 origin/master
to see if the tip commit is different from that in another repository.
