I just upgraded to Git 18.104.22.168 for Windows, from my previous version 1.7.9.mysysgit.0. I downloaded the new version from the Git site and installed it through the normal Git installer EXE.
That said, when I fire up my terminal window, it still is showing that I am running git version 1.7.9.mysysgit.0. When I type "git --version" from my prompt, same thing.
I found this article on a similar issue with Git on Mac OSX, which leads me to believe that it has something to do with a faulty PATH, but I'm still pretty new at all this (5 months self-taught), so I'm at a loss in how to translate this to Windows.
This problem arose when I began a new Rails project and tried to push it up to Git. I added the remote:
git remote add origin firstname.lastname@example.org:xxxx.git
git push -u origin master
I received the following error message:
fatal: https://github.com refs not found: did you run git update-server-info on the server?
