I'm trying to clean a Big file from the a bit bucket repository (> 2 GB) but the references for pull request don't let me. I make sure there were no PR in the repository.
This are the steps I follow
Clone the repository using the --mirror tag to ensure all referenes are copied and what I will have in my local repository is a exact copy of the online repo.
git clone --mirror git://example.com/some-big-repo.git
Clean all commit, branches and tags from references to files bigger than 2 GB
java -jar bfg.jar --strip-blobs-bigger-than 2048M OUR_REPOSITORY.git
Delete all the unwanted data
git reflog expire --expire=now --all && git gc --prune=now --aggressive
Update the changes to the online repository
git config -e
# Change configuration to ignore PR refs
repositoryformatversion = 0
filemode = false
bare = true
symlinks = false
ignorecase = true
url = ssh://git@bitbucket.XXX.XXXX.ch:1111/XXX/XXXX-XXXX.git
fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/heads/*
fetch = +refs/tags/*:refs/tags/*
mirror = true
git remote update
git push --force
After the step 4 I received this message
C:\Users\XXXX\Desktop\git\XXXX-XXXX.git>git push --force

error: failed to push some refs to 'ssh://bitbucket.XXX.XXXX.ch:1111/XXXX/XXXX-XXXX.git'
I have take a look at https://community.atlassian.com/t5/Bitbucket-questions/Bitbucket-reserved-refs-when-cleaning-up-with-BFG-tool/qaq-p/702969 but could not make it work.
I'm not sure what else I can do besides create a new repository.
Thank you in advance,
