Issue #6236 invalid
created an issue


We are a small team (3 persons) but we use Bitbucket every day (39 repositories), and JIRA (1x 25 licence) and Confluence, thanks for you amazing job!

But we have a huge problem on almost every repository. After few weeks, we cannot pull the latest commits.


 * branch            master     -> FETCH_HEAD
There are no candidates for merging among the refs that you just fetched.
Generally this means that you provided a wildcard refspec which had no
matches on the remote end.

Our config file is:

    repositoryformatversion = 0
    filemode = true
    bare = false
    logallrefupdates = true
[remote "origin"]
    url =
    fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*
[remote "original"]
    url =
    fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/original/*
[branch "master"]
    remote = origin
    merge = refs/heads/master
    name = Prod
    email =

Our solution? Create an another repository (ex: "repo2") and push an init commit from complete source "repo". It's very dirty, I know.

So, can you help us? This problem occurs only on Bitbucket repository and we don't want to change.

Of course, we tried: - -
