Eclipse EGIT: Current branch not configred for pull
I am working on a tilebased RPG with a friend of mine who has to go away for weeks and we decided it was time to use version control/git. I am starting to regret that. After a few hours we managed to get it working to the point where:
- I create a repository on github, add him as collaborator.
- I commit project in eclipse to git, push
- He pulls, gets it imported in his workspace
- I make some changes, commit push, he pulls the changes.
- He makes some changes, commits and pushes successfully. Changes appear in repo
- I try to pull changes, get errors (see image), unsuccessful.
- I make some changes, try to commit, get errors, unsuccessful.
Essentially we are locked with a project he can update and I cannot. I am the repo owner if that matters at all.
On trying to “Fetch from upstream”:
On trying to “Pull”:
We are pretty much stuck now. We rather not use skype to send files, at some point we are going to be professionals and that seems too tedious.

The error message “This branch is not configured for pull” in EGit is typical of a branch created locally and pushed.
That wouldn’t set the merge section of that branch.
See “The current branch is not configured for pull No value for key
branch.master.merge found in configuration”
[branch "master"] remote = origin merge = refs/heads/master
To solve that, one way is to rename your current
master branch, and, in the
Git Repositories view:
- Right-click on “
Branches” / “
Switch to” / “
- pull down “
Source ref” list, select “
master” branch (pull strategy “
Checkout new branch” checked)
- click “
The new branch should be correctly configured
This worked for me in Eclipse IDE with EGit:
Open Window->Show view->Other->Git->Git Repositories Right click on your repo in Git Repositories view -> Properties Click "Add Entry..." button key: branch.master.remote value: origin OK Click "Add Entry..." button key: branch.master.merge value: refs/heads/master OK Right click on your repo -> Pull
Btw. I’m pulling master from remote and my local branch when pulling is also master.
