rejected master -> master (non-fast-forward)


I'm trying to push my project (all files in a new repository). I follow the steps but when I push with git push -u origin master I get this error:

! [rejected]        master -> master (non-fast-forward)
error: failed to push some refs to '[email protected]:asantoya/projectnewbies.git'
To prevent you from losing history, non-fast-forward updates were rejected
Merge the remote changes (e.g. 'git pull') before pushing again.  See the
'Note about fast-forwards' section of 'git push --help' for details.

I got this error many times and can't figure out what to do.


NOTICE: This is never a recommended use of git. This will overwrite changes on the remote. Only do this if you know 100% that your local changes should be pushed to the remote master.

⚠️ Try this: git push -f origin master
