Just starting out on stash here and I have had the following error code when trying to select a source branch when creating a Pull Request within one of my repositories.
Below is the error;
An error occurred while executing an external process: '/usr/bin/git for-each-ref --sort=-committerdate --format=%(refname)|%(refname:short)|%(objectname) refs/heads/' exited with code 128 saying: fatal: missing object 0000000000000000000000000000000000000000 for refs/heads/feature-fix-honolulu-unit-tests
Any help would be massively appreciated?
As this issue is resolved in a support ticket, here is the resolution for reference:
"feature-fix-honolulu-unit-tests" exist in Stash filesystem but the remote ref is broken.
Trying to delete the branch or checking out gives the following error:
? muve git:(develop) git push origin :feature-fix-honolulu-unit-tests error: unable to delete 'feature-fix-honolulu-unit-tests': remote ref does not exist error: failed to push some refs to 'ssh://firstname.lastname@example.org:8443/muve2/muve.git' ? muve git:(develop) git checkout -b feature-fix-honolulu-unit-tests fatal: A branch named 'feature-fix-honolulu-unit-tests' already exists.

Someone with filesystem access will need to check for the presence of <tt>/mnt/stashDrive/data/repositories/336/refs/heads/feature-fix-honolulu-unit-tests</tt> (a loose ref) and, if it's there, remove it. Whether the loose ref exists or not, they'll also need to look for a <tt>refs/heads/feature-fix-honolulu-unit-tests</tt> line in<tt>/mnt/stashDrive/data/repositories/336/packed-refs</tt> and remove that if present.
As a project manager, I have discovered that different developers want to bring their previous branching method with them when they join the team. Some developers are used to performing individual wo...
