It is quite rare to see someone doing such operations on the bare
repository. Instead, you should do the fetch+merge (aka pull) or
fetch+rebase on your local repo (non-bare), and push it back to the bare
repository.

Some personal note: I have tons of repositories on my home machine, all of
which have a bare counterpart on a network drive. I don't remember touching
the bare repos directly in the last few years. It is simply unnecessary.

Best,
Gergely
