fatal: Updating an unborn branch with changes added to the index

'python-progress' update failed, then reinstall 'yay', then remove and install 'python-progress' also failed...

$ yay -S python-progress
AUR Explicit (1): python-progress-1.6-7
:: (0/1) Downloaded PKGBUILD: python-progress
 -> error fetching python-progress: fatal: Updating an unborn branch with changes added to the index.
	 context: exit status 128

?

Manual install of 'python-progress' works (https://wiki.archlinux.org/title/Arch_U … g_packages)

note: Recent recovery from backup produced some obscure errors/corruption.

So this is just a yay issue then.  You'll at least want to add that to the title.  Although you should post on the yay issue tracker on github as that's where the yay maintainer has requested such questions go... and a fair portion of users here will just shrug and say "it's yay, we don't expect it to work."
