I wanted to rename a branch in one of our (Git) repositories. The way to do this is to
This last step fails, like this:

[I can push to all the other repos on the server and all the other branches of this repo without problems.]
I tried the following:
None of these change the result.
The repo is a live one with quite many active users and a history of ~100 pull requests I cannot afford to lose, so deleting and re-pushing the whole repo is not an acceptable option (unless there is a way to migrate the PR's to the new copy).
Any suggestions for what could be wrong and how I could fix it?
This post by slacy has similar symptoms:
I'd try manually fixing the file as they suggest and setting the core.sharedRepository flag, if it isn't already.
What version of Stash are you using? Have you made any changes to the repository configuration on disk (outside of the Stash administration)?
As said above, I already looked at the permissions and there is nothing more to give. (Also, all the other randomly sampled packfiles I checked in this repo and others have exactly the same settings.)
I set core.sharedRepository to "all", it does not change the output.
We have Stash 3.0.4 (but this problem has been with us since 2.11 or 2.12), on Windows Server 2008 R2. This core.sharedRepository setting I changed now is the only thing I changed outside of the web UI.
