Hello! So it seems there's some confusion as to what "HEAD" means. HEAD is a pointer to a commit, and in this case it's a pointer to that commit you switched to rather than the latest commit on a branch. Specifically, you're on a detached HEAD, which means any commits you make right now might get lost.


The easiest way to fix this is to create a new branch. This is probably what the "throwaway" is supposed to be. Once you make that new branch, switch back to "master" and then merge that previous branch into master. Once merged, do a push, and that "origin/master" and "origin/HEAD" indicator should now be back on the "Reverted to Controller" commit.
