Answer from official github support ( firstname.lastname@example.org ):
In order to create a pull request the repository must exist on
There is a button called ‘View Branch’ beside the update from master
If you click this, the ‘View from Master’ button should change
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.
- I was using GitHub Windows client
- I was using the repository which was associated with account X.
- 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.
