Git: updating remote branch information


In a git repository, a remote branch I am not tracking was deleted. When I type

the deleted branch still shows up (and I can check it out)

What git command do I have to run to update this info?


If you perform something like

you only remove your local checkout. This command doesn’t do anything to the remote repository, which is why it still shows up.


will remove the the remote branch (note the ‘:’), and

will remove your local checkout.
