Hi Bijoy! If you go to the Settings > Fork syncing tab, does it show as syncing?

If the upstream and your fork have diverged (so that each has changes that are not in the other) Bitbucket Server will not perform a merge automatically. When you visit the branch in Bitbucket Server, you have the option to manually synchronize the branch.You can manually sync your branch at any time using Synchronize by going to the Settings > Fork syncing tab for the forked repository, or on either of the Source or Commits tabs.

If they're not in sync it could be one of the following:

  1. Some internal communication issue.
  2. There are merge conflicts that need to be resolved. Go to your fork. Click the Compare button.By default, the system shows you outgoing changes. That is, changes made on your fork that do not exist in the original repository. Click Incoming to see what changes were made in the original that do not exist on your fork.Bitbucket lists any changes it finds and provides instructions for merging the changes in the local repository.Merge the changes on your local clone of the fork.

For more information, here's an existing blog post for managing sync's Syncing and merging come to Bitbucket. You can also check the config for Fork Syncing according to Bitbucket Server config properties.

Hope this helps!
