Can't remove a remote git branch
This is what I'm doing.... how do I get rid of the origin remote branch? And what is it?
[master] /dir: git status
# On branch master
nothing to commit (working directory clean)
[master] /dir: git remote show
[master] /dir: git branch -r
origin/HEAD -> origin/master
[master] /dir: git branch -rd origin/HEAD
error: remote branch 'origin/HEAD' not found.
[master] /dir: git branch -rd origin
error: remote branch 'origin' not found.
[master] /dir: git branch -rd origin/HEAD -> origin/master
-bash: origin/master: No such file or directory
[master] /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/asanawww: git branch -rd origin/master
error: remote branch 'origin/master' not found.
[master] /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/asanawww: git push origin :master
fatal: 'origin' does not appear to be a git repository
fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly
I also tried
git gc --prune=now
with no luck
