How exactly do you try pushing this new issue branch ("#3178")? Please copy 
and paste in the exact commands you used.

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

I'm not sure where you got this -b switch from, but in my Git that is an 
invalid argument to git remote. What version of Git are you using?

This should work, although if you want to actually follow that naming 
convention, you should name your branches with the update-2.0.1/ prefix 
like this:

git checkout -b "update-2.0.1/#3178"
git push origin "update-2.0.1/#3178"

There will then be a remote branch like this:

git branch -a
  remotes/origin/update-2.0.1/#3178

Using hashes (#) in branch names is a bit cumbersome as the branch name has 
to be quoted like I do above (at least in my zsh), but it works.
