git, how to I go back to origin master after pulling a branch
This has to be a FAQ, but I can’t find it googling.
Another person created a branch, commit’d to it, and pushed it to github using
git push origin newbranch
I successfully pulled it down using
git pull origin newbranch
Now, I want to go back to the origin master version.
Nothing I do seems to cause the files in the origin master to replace those in the newbranch.
git checkout master git checkout origin master git pull git pull origin HEAD etc
git pull origin master returns:
* branch master -> FETCH_HEAD Already up-to-date.
This can’t be hard, but I sure can’t figure it out.
‘git branch’ returns
and ‘git branch -r’ return
origin/HEAD origin/experimental origin/master

This should work to do what you need:
git checkout origin/master
Next time, maybe you can use git fetch first, after that, use git merge.
This will make your operation more clear.
