Git refuses to discover new remote branches

By admin | January 23, 2021

In addition to the excellent suggestions at https://stackoverflow.com/questions/1783405/how-do-i-check-out-a-remote-git-branch, take a look in .git/config and make sure fetch is specified to only fetch the master branch:

[remote "origin"]
  url = git@github.com:example/coolproject.git
  fetch = +refs/heads/master:refs/remotes/origin/master # bad

You’ll want to change the fetch line to fetch all branches instead:

[remote "origin"]
  url = git@github.com:example/coolproject.git
  fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*
