Fix error: failed to push some refs to repository in Git
Hello everyone, I have a project website and use GitHub to help manage source code. Source code still pulls and pushes normally but today after pulling code I had to fix some bugs and push to Git source by using the command:
git push origin main
But I couldn't push all data changed to the origin main branch. I see an issue : error: failed to push some refs to 'https://github.com/dungdo1991/testpullpush.git'.
$ git push origin main Username for 'https://github.com': user_test Password for 'https://[email protected]': To https://github.com/dungdo1991/testpullpush.git ![rejected] main -> main (non-fast-forward) error: failed to push some refs to 'https://github.com/dungdo1991/testpullpush.git'
Not sure about what is happening, I worry will be lost some commit of other people. Please help me, how to fix it?
I'm using git version 2.35.1.windows.2.
Thank you in advance.

I really got the same problem. I was getting this problem because I had not made any commits, not even an initial commit and still I was trying to push.
Once I did
git commit -m "your comment here", everything worked fine.

In some cases you need to rename your branch and then push, e.g.:
git branch -m new_branch_name git push -u new_branch_name
This worked for me.

You can try this solution:
git reset --mixed origin/main git add . git commit -m "add comment here" git push origin main
it's worked for me.

I followed the following steps.
rm -rf .git git init git add . git commit -m "Your comment here" git remote add origin "https://github.com/dungdo909118/testpullpush.git" git push -u origin main
This way worked for me.
