You are syncing _ONLY_ the working tree state without syncing Git
state at all, and that is why the server side gets confused. You
have to stop doing that.
If you do not do any change on the server end, you can simply stop
having a git repository there; just treat its directory as what it
really is: a copy of the working tree, something akin to an
If you do change on both, you probably are better off without the
mechanism to copy working tree one-way that you currently have.
Just push or fetch between the two repositories and integrate the

This is expected as pushing into the remote would not affect what is
checked out, most importantly, the index. But this ...

... indicates that you are not pushing to update the remote
repository correctly. Once you get that part working correctly,
after you push at the end of the session, you should be able to do
"git reset" at the other side to tell Git to notice that the updated
working tree files that were transferred behind its back are now in
sync with what is supposed to be checked out.
