BitBucket Unable to merge Unrelated Branches

Hello all,


I am new to git and not super tech savvy when it comes to it. I use source tree to commit and push code. I am running into strange issues which I never did before. When I merge my branch to the master I get this errorGitIssue3.PNG: "Unable to merge, unrelated branches".

Moreover, I see strange things in my repo:


1. The remote and the locals don't seem connected at all GitIssue2.PNG 

2. I keep getting prompted for authentication but that username is wrong and I can't find a way to change it:



Any help in this regard would be great!

Hello! You're seeing this error because "Aditya_local" is branched from "master" which is somehow different than the master that exists online in Bitbucket. I'm not sure how that happened -- what steps did you take to create your repository?

I started programming locally. Then when things started to work, I first created an online repo on BB. Then using source tree, I created a new repo with the project folder of my local code. Then I added remote to it using the url from the BB repository.

Mike Carsaro so if we have to merge these 2 unrelated builds then how should we do that?
