How to Fix Detached Origin/Main in GitHub

Fixing a detached origin/main branch in GitHub involves synchronizing your local changes with the remote repository. If your main branch is disconnected and still points to an initial empty commit, you'll need to merge or rebase the branches correctly. Using Git commands or SourceTree, you can create a temporary branch, merge it with the main branch, and push the updates to the remote repository. Force pushing may be necessary, but take caution to avoid overwriting important changes.
