Ever get this error:

$ git pull origin master
fatal: Couldn't find remote ref master
Unexpected end of command stream

For me, the problem was that the URL I had entered was incorrect. I had just gotten done pasting the wrong URL:

$ git remote add origin

So to fix it, you’ll want to edit your .git/config file and change the URL to the proper one.
