I know that this question has been asked many times, but I got this error simply by initializing a new repository. No remote branches. I’m just trying to create a new branch.
All my commands
I repeat NO REMOTE BRANCHES. My repo doesn’t have any connection with another world.
I create new directory , came into that, did
git init git add . git commit -m something # I trying git checkout -m new_branch # and I get : error: pathspec '.....' did not match any file(s) known to git
I guess you want
git checkout -b new_branch, to create a new branch from the current head.
-m is a valid option, but in
git checkout -m new_branch the
new_branch should be an existing one. If it does not exist yet, it raises
error: pathspec 'new_branch' did not match any file(s) known to git
