You're prolly getting this error coz you don't have the branch created with the given name of Stage1Video4 in your local repo. You should run this command instead:

git checkout -b Stage1Video4

Where - b flag instructs the git to create the branch if not created before.

I've just cloned the files from the GitHub website, I thought it should have all the branches in it.

Are you sure you're in the same directory level as the .git folder? (:

I went to https://github.com/hdngr/treehouse-gulp-basics clicked in clone or download then download zip. After download I opened the files using my text editor, then I came to the terminal when I type git checkout Stage1Video4 the error occurred.

Alright! If you downloaded the zip folder, you probably have to initialize git for the project and create everything from the scratch. However, if you clone the project and fetched the data, you should be in the same directory as your .git folder in order to perform any git related commands.
