How to push a new branch non-existing on the remote server without –set-upstream?
The scenario is that I have no repos on the remote server, just an account. Then, I run locally the following commands, where x is the user name and y is the project name that only exists on my local system.
git init git remote add buckety https://email@example.com/x/y.git git add . git commit --message "Here we go..." git push buckety
Now I get the error urging me to set up the remote upstream. I can do that (either
-u) but according to my googlearching, it’s been deprecated. (Actually weird that the suggestion in the console mentions it still.)

- Time Tracking+Git: measuring effort per commit
- git-lfs checkout remote branch
- Local only, revision/version/source control
- Connecting To A Git Repository On A Linux Server Through C#
- Does git reuse blobs?
I want to do it the proper way and I’ve goolearched both
--set-upstream-to. However, there’s no example for my particular scenario on Git as far I could see and the operations I’ve tested failed with errors.
How should I create the remote branch without retracting to using the deprecated option? I might want to create a tracking branch on remote so that:
- the local branch A corresponds to the remote branch A, but also
- the local branch A corresponds to the remote branch B.
Preferably, I’d like to configure it prior to the push but I’m not sure how. I can’t use checkout because the branch doesn’t exist yet. I can’t use set-upstream-to for the same reason.

The right command is:
git push -u origin master
Then the next git push will be a simple:
See “Why do I need to explicitly push a new branch?”
Since Git 1.8,
--set-upstream is called
You can setup a remote tracking branch in advance with:
git branch -u origin/master master
(Then your first git push would have been a simple
That is how i push to gerrit instance without adding remote
git push http://localhost:8080/scm *:* fatal: remote error: Git repository not found
But the project must exist already
