I made a branch called ‘f’ and did a checkout to master. When I tried the git pull command I got this message:

You have not concluded your merge (MERGE_HEAD exists).
Please, commit your changes before you can merge.

When I try the git status, it gave me the following:

On branch master
# Your branch and 'origin/master' have diverged,
# and have 1 and 13 different commit(s) each, respectively.

What should I do?


Solution

The problem is your previous pull failed to merge automatically and went to conflict state. And the conflict wasn’t resolved properly before the next pull.

  1. Undo the merge and pull again.

To undo a merge:

git merge --abort [Since git version 1.7.4]

git reset --merge [prior git versions]

  1. Resolve the conflict.

  2. Don’t forget to add and commit the merge.

  3. git pull now should work fine.
