When I do the force update an error

ssh: Could not resolve hostname +771a004fba7e893ad31308619231041a4559ebc1^: nodename nor servname provided, or not known
fatal: Could not read from remote repository.

Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.
iMac:adeptcare_personnel SarahBaker$ git push origin +771a004fba7e893ad31308619231041a4559ebc1^:develop
error: The destination you provided is not a full refname (i.e.,
starting with "refs/"). We tried to guess what you meant by:

  • Looking for a ref that matches 'develop' on the remote side.
  • Checking if the being pushed ('771a004fba7e893ad31308619231041a4559ebc1^')
    is a ref in "refs/{heads,tags}/". If so we add a corresponding
    refs/{heads,tags}/ prefix on the remote side.

Neither worked, so we gave up. You must fully qualify the ref.
hint: The part of the refspec is a commit object.
hint: Did you mean to create a new branch by pushing to
hint: '771a004fba7e893ad31308619231041a4559ebc1^:refs/heads/develop'?
error: failed to push some refs to ''


:develop is your branch name
