Ammended a commit AFTER it was merged into 'master'

I did that in my feature branch which resulted in one PUSH and one PULL pending and I fail both of them. For example, trying to PUSH to the repository I get the following response:

git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false push -v --tags origin EoD2_cleanup:EoD2_cleanup
Pushing to D:/Meir/Dropbox/git_repositories/ML.git
sh: warning: setlocale: LC_ALL: cannot change locale (en): No such file or directory
To D:/Meir/Dropbox/git_repositories/ML.git
 ! [rejected]        EoD2_cleanup -> EoD2_cleanup (non-fast-forward)
error: failed to push some refs to 'D:/Meir/Dropbox/git_repositories/ML.git'
hint: Updates were rejected because the tip of your current branch is behind
hint: its remote counterpart. Integrate the remote changes (e.g.
hint: 'git pull ...') before pushing again.
hint: See the 'Note about fast-forwards' in 'git push --help' for details.

How do I get out of this mess?, Pleeeease...

Well, you can't push until you've pulled. What is the Pull error?

@seth: For no apparent reason, I was successful in PULLing and then successful in PUSHing. Why it was that way is a mystery for me. (I remind myself of a certain computer challenged person in our household smile). But I learned my lesson: NO AMEND, EVER! (learned it the hard way, but is there ever an easy way???) Thanks, Meir.

There's nothing wrong with amending and I do it all the time!

If you've already pushed your changes to your remote and then decide you want to change them, amend the commit like you have done. Then in terminal/cmd type in 

git push -f


git push remotename branchname -f
