Github - Merging is blocked

I have multiple branches:

master

stav

Github doesn't let me finish the pull request:

The error:


Merging is blocked.
Merging can be performed automatically with one
approved review.


What does it mean? How can I fix it?

Answer Source

That comes from late 2015 "Protected branches and required status checks" where protected branch can have required status checks.

See "About required status checks" and "About required reviews for pull requests"

If a person with admin permissions chooses the Request changes option in a review, then that person must approve the pull request before it can be merged

Note: a review can be dismissed (although only by the owner/admin of the repo).

As torek comments, once a review is performed, the "Merging is blocked" cleared out automatically.
