There is a remote GIT repository (original). There is local storage (Z) without working files. Two branches have been saved to local storage Z branch1 and branch2.
Created two working folders for the repository.
From one we ran the command to delete a remote branch:
$ git push Z --delete branch1
Now, if we display a list of remote branches in the second working folder, we will see the label branch1:
$ git branch --remote z/branch1 z/branch2 origin/HEAD -> origin/master
If we try to execute the command to delete the branch branch1 from the second folder, we will receive an error message:
$ git push Z --delete branch1 error: unable to delete 'branch1': remote ref does not exist error: failed to push some refs to 'Z:\GitRepositories\Storage1'
How to remove information about the remote branch branch1 from the second working folder?
try updating remote Z with the –prune option in the second copy. this should remove information about branches that no longer exist:
$ git remote update Z --prune
