I am having trouble understanding the concept of git local and remote 
versioning. For example I have a iPhone app in a local git rep. Initally 
this was my master branch.

I then checked out a new branch git checkout -b "update-2.0.1". 

Then I set git push origin update-2.0.1 to ensure that I have a seperate 
branch for developing this app update and when done merge it back into my 
master branch. Fine!

Now that I am on my update-branch I want to create branches for every issue 
ID. So I say git checkout -b "#3178" - when I now try to push this new 
issue-branch in my remote repository git says "Everything-up-to-date". 

I don't see why it is not possible to push this issue branch to the remote 

git remote -b returns 



I would love to see a third branch
