    Answer from official github support ( support@github.com ):

    In order to create a pull request the repository must exist on
    GitHub.com.

    and

    There is a button called ‘View Branch’ beside the update from master
    button.

    If you click this, the ‘View from Master’ button should change
    to ‘Compare’.

    If you click this button you should see a list of
    branches you can choose from to merge!

    I have found a similar issue in below case.

    1. I was using GitHub Windows client
    2. I was using the repository which was associated with account X.
    3. X moved that repository to another account called Y.

    Now onward, I was able to perform normal operation like creating new branch, push, sync etc button Pull Request button was not visible for those repository which has moved from account X to Y.

    Solution:- It was happening because remote URL in my windows client was still pointing to old account repository, so I have changed that to new account repository and restarted the windows client and it started working.
