Develop branch pull error

Each time I sit down to write particle firmware I do a git pull on the develop branch.

This evening I got this errror.

It says it right there in the message! :wink:

Yea I saw that but though I’d check as the error seems related to an electron branch and thats new rather than old.

I’ll give the prune a go.

Git is great when its working and Ive loved how easy keeping up to date with develop has been. But when Git gets out of kilter it can be a bit unfun fixing it again.
