Github Windows ‘Failed to sync this branch’


I am using Github Windows and when I click the ‘Sync’ button after committing, I get the error

enter image description here

How do I debug this problem? If in the shell, what should I do?

The sync works fine if i do a git push or git pull, but the next time I want to sync using Github windows, I get the same error.


When it says that, just open the shell and do git status. That will give you a decent idea of what could be wrong and the state of your repo.

I can’t give you a specific error for this as it happens for many reasons in Github for Windows, like say some problem in updating submodules etc.
