I am having trouble understanding the process of merging origin/master, specifically the text required to do this.

Does anyone have any information on this?

In the terminal just use: git merge origin/master

I did that but still having the same issue with the original poster,

correct answer is:

step 1:
cd my-quizzes

step 2:
git fetch origin
git merge origin/master

step 3:
git log


git fetch origin

is not required in those steps.

it is if you reload the page

The course should be updated to include this information. A simple note stating that if you see:

merge: origin/master - not something we can merge

you will need to issue the command:
git fetch origin
