Git fetch fails when "Branch Specifier" uses a parameter in new version of the Git plugin

    XMLWordPrintable

Details

    Description

      In a pipeline job from a git repository where the "Branch Specifier" is given as a parameter, I started getting the following failure after updating the git plugin.

      hudson.plugins.git.GitException: Command "git fetch --tags --progress origin +refs/heads/$\{GITREF}:refs/remotes/origin/$\{GITREF} --prune" returned status code 128:
      stdout: 
      stderr: fatal: Couldn't find remote ref refs/heads/$\{GITREF}

      Finished: FAILURE
      

      I have tested all released version of the git plugin from 3.0.1 to 3.2.0 and the failure seems to have appeared in 3.0.2.

      I don't know if it is relevant but with the Git plugin version 3.0.1, I see this at the beginning of the log:
      Lightweight checkout support not available, falling back to full checkout.
