When deleting remote git branch “error: unable to push to unqualified destination”
I'm trying to delete a remote git branch with
git push origin :my_remote_branch
error: unable to push to unqualified destination: my_remote_branch
The destination refspec neither matches an existing ref on the remote nor
begins with refs/, and we are unable to guess a prefix based on the source ref.
error: failed to push some refs to 'email@example.com:/myrepo'
these are my current branches
git branch -a
remotes/origin/HEAD -> origin/master
git branch -r --merged
origin/HEAD -> origin/master
Any ideas on how I can get rid of this branch would be appreciated.
