Commit but not pushing?

I've uploaded a large commit in one go (9GB) it's the project we're working on.

I've received some orange warning pointing to this directory [C:\Users\User\AppData\Local\Temp\jyf0uttn.lz5] I've missed the error but this is all I had from it, couldn't replicate the warning.

Afterwards the problem below appeared, there's a push (1) yet spamming push doesn't do anything.


Is it already pushing or am I missing something?

I found the problem.

Created new repo to test


Sourcetree could not authenticate my account


Despite deleting and signing in again.

Used GitHub Desktop, same auth problem, so just logged out and logged back in.


Auth fixed, all files pushed.

For a while friends advised against Sourcetree, this was the turning point.

Does anyone know what the problem is?

It looks like your local copy of main is not tracking origin/main, which is the remote main. Open the command line and run this command to link them:

git branch -u main/main 

 If the linking is successful you should see the remote branch when you push, it should show up as a line with a checkbox.

Try and select your main branch instead of the HEAD, and then push it. Your HEAD is not associated with a remote branch (this is expected), so that is why the Push pop-up window is not showing a branch.

Issue still persists.


I've originally attempted with main, it was just while screen shotting I clicked elsewhere.

Any hints what the problem may be?
