If all else fails, clean out these files.

git clean -fxd

This deletes all untracked files (but does not touch any changes you made).
 Note that "git status" will not show anything about this error if you
configured git to suppress printing untracked files (which is suggested on
the Amber wiki). Specifically, if you ran "git config
status.showUntrackedFiles no", then these 'untracked' files will not be
printed by 'git status'.

Alternatively, you can try a "git pull -f" to force through these safety
guards if you are certain you just want something that mirrors the main

All the best,
