* [new branch] Jaison/master_branch -> origin/Jaison/master_branch
error: cannot lock ref 'refs/remotes/origin/dale/campaign_template_builder': unable to resolve reference 'refs/remotes/origin/dale/campaign_template_builder': reference broken

Hi @Venalyn,

Your local working copy and the remote repository are different enough that Git is unable to resolve that. I recommend cloning the remote repository again to a new location, create a patch from the commits or differences, and then apply it to a new branch. Hope that helps.

Hi @Venalyn

@bgannin's solution in large projects is a little: kill a fly with cannonball. You can remove the references to the failing branch in packed-refs, info/refs inside the .git folder
