Development Tools Git Basics Working With Remote Repositories Pushing and Pulling

I keep getting this fatal error. I've even restarted the project to see if I made a mistake.

$ git push fatal: The current branch new_feature has no upstream branch. To push the current branch and set the remote as upstream, use

git push --set-upstream origin new_feature

I used git push and got this error after we pulled from origin and then corrected a conflict. (Actually I got this error some times earlier but it wasn't a problem)

Oh and I use Git Bash on Windows.

The answer is in the error message. Git doesn't know your upstream branch so when you ran git push it gave you the error and how to fix it. Once you set the upstream, you'll be able to just do git push.

True. I don't know why I needed to do this when it isn't part of the video.
