I was migrating my hotfix branch from Mercurial to Git. I used the hg-git plugin to import my hotfix branch into a new branch on my forked repo of my git project. Is there a way to add the newly created branch to the upstream repo? The branch does not currently exist on the upstream repo.
I tried to run...
git push u git@git.<name of upstream repo>.git hotfix
error: src refspec git@git.<name of upstream repo> does not match any
error: failed to push some refs to 'u'
You should use
-u instead of
u. You can try this command:
git push -u origin hotfix
Note: origin is the default short name for remote. You can use
git remote -v to check if your remote short name is origin or else.
