EGIT does not add origin github remote

Why if I create a local repository, then create a github repository and then add that as remote, I commit to local and then I push to remote, but I have no ability to pull from remote to local?

If I add remote using git bash all is well remote is properly configured and I can pull, and push and fetch to upstream but if I do it thru the EGIT wizard it never works for local repositories that get pushed and then get fetched and merged…
Any clues?

    simply add

        [branch "master"]
            remote = origin
            merge = refs/heads/master

    into .git/config
    to pull from origin/master into master

    You can do this in the “Git Repositories” tab.

    Window > Show view > Other… > Git > Git Repositories

    Expend your project’s repository > Right click on “Remotes” > Create Remote…

    There’s a discussion on this providing a proposed solution, and pointing to a bugzilla bug report at .

    In short, the issue seems to be that the Egit system does not know which branch on the remote corresponds to the master branch in eclipse, and the solution is adding this info to a config file.

    The change in the config file didnt work in my case.

    So I deleted the local project after the initial push and did a pull afterwards. Now everything’s fine.
