I am trying to add a file to my repository on BitBucket and I am having trouble.
I am using GIT and this is what I type in
$ cd lis4368/assignments $ git remote $ git remote -v $ git remote rm origin
and then I type this in (this is what BitBucket tells me to enter)
$ git remote add origin https://cpb[email protected]/cpb09e/cpb09e.git $ git push -u origin master
And I keep getting this error message:
error: src refspec master does not match any. error: failed to push some refs to 'https://[email protected]/cpb09e/cpb09e.git'
Can someone pleas help me out? I have tried everything from git commit to rm -rf * and I cannot get anything to work at all.
One classic root cause for this message is:
git init lis4368/assignments),
Ie, if you don't have added and committed at least once, there won't be a local
master branch to push to.
Try first to create a commit:
git add .) then
git commit -m "first commit"
git commit --allow-empty -m "Initial empty commit"
And then try
git push -u origin master again.
See "Why do I need to explicitly push a new branch?" for more.
It doesn't recognize that you have a master branch, but I found a way to get around it. I found out that there's nothing special about a master branch, you can just create another branch and call it master branch and that's what I did.
To create a master branch:
git checkout -b master
And you can work off of that.
