Ah, that makes sense.

The name "origin" generally resolves to refs/remotes/origin/HEAD, which
is a symbolic ref pointing to the "default branch" for that remote.
That's generally set at clone time from what the remote has in its HEAD,
but you can update it with "git remote set-head" if you want to.
But that's just for resolving the name; I'm not sure that it would work
to set a branch's upstream to just "origin". Do you possibly have
another ref named origin?
