I want to delete a branch both locally and at the branch of my remote project on Github.
Deleted local branch successfully
$ git branch -D bugfix Deleted branch bugfix (was 2a14ef7).
-D option is a shortcut of
--delete --force . If you want to remove the local branch that must be fully merged in the upper branches, use
-d which is a shortcut of
Failed attempts to delete a remote branch
$ git branch -d remotes/origin/bugfix error: branch 'remotes/origin/bugfix' not found. $ git branch -d origin/bugfix error: branch 'origin/bugfix' not found. $ git branch -rd origin/bugfix Deleted remote branch origin/bugfix (was 2a14ef7). $ git push Everything up-to-date $ git pull From github.com:gituser/gitproject * [new branch] bugfix -> origin/bugfix Already up-to-date.
What do I need to do differently to successfully remove the remotes / origin / bugfix branch both locally and on Github?
