To update a branch with the latest changes from the master branch on GitHub, you can follow these steps:

  1. Make sure you are on the branch you want to update. You can switch to the branch by using the following command:
1
git checkout <branch_name>


Replace <branch_name> with the name of the branch you want to update.

  1. Pull the latest changes from the master branch by running the following command:
1
git pull origin master


This command will fetch the latest changes from the remote master branch and merge them into your current branch.

  1. Resolve any merge conflicts that may occur during the merge process. Git will prompt you to resolve conflicts if there are any.
  2. Once all conflicts are resolved, you can push the changes to the remote branch by running:
1
git push origin <branch_name>


Replace <branch_name> with the name of the branch you are updating.


By following these steps, you can easily update your branch with the latest changes from the master branch on GitHub.
