If you are using the "dumb" http protocol (i.e., the web server knows
nothing about git, and just serves the repo files), you need to run "git
update-server-info" after each push in order to update the static file
that tells the git client about each ref. You can have git do it
automatically for you by setting receive.updateServerInfo in the server
repo's config.

If the server is yours to control, consider setting up the "smart" http
protocol, as it is much more efficient. Details are in "git help
