git fetch upstream doesn't work

I’m trying to use git fetch upstream master to get the latest commit from another user’s repository. But unfortunately that doesn’t work. I have also tried git fetch upstream.

What does work is git pull upstream master, but I don’t want to use that all the time, because that will always automatically perform a merge.

    git fetch upstream master

    And here are my remotes:

    git remote -v
    origin (fetch)
    origin (push)
    upstream (fetch)
    upstream (push)

    The fetch did work, but to see the result, you should do a:

    git log --oneline --all --graph --decorate --branches

    You would see the upstream branches (including the upstream/master)

    You can also check the latest SHA1 fetched with:

    git branch -avv

    The git pull upstream master didn’t repeat the fetch part (since it was already done), but merge as well upstream/master to master.
