I am trying to use a repository being served at my work, by me. If I:
It shows the branches that I expect, e.g.:
git branch -a shows:
remotes/origin/HEAD -> origin/master
git branch -r show:
origin/HEAD -> origin/master
This produces an error message:
git checkout -b noo origin/floop
Fatal: Cannot update paths and switch to branch 'noo' at the same time.
So, after that I've tried things I've read about but don't understand, like:
git remote update
I get the same error message when trying to checkout the branch.
git remote add woof https://example.com/arf.git
git fetch woof
git checkout -b noo woo/floop
Produces the same error message.
git branch -a
now also shows
and nothing else new.
Can you tell what the problem is?
