Failing to push to origin on gitpod

Hi campers,

I am working on gitpod. I have been trying to solve this problem for the better half of today. Every time I try git push origin BRANCH-NAME, I get:

error: src refspec master does not match any
error: failed to push some refs to ORIGIN

I have tried solutions online but without success.

Have you set the remote branch as the upstream tracking branch yet?

I think I did. Essentially git remote -v returns:

origin (fetch)
origin (push)
upstream (fetch)
upstream (push)

Unless there is something I am missing.
