Update the reference first

git update-ref -d refs/remotes/origin/[locked branch name]

Then synchronize the code git pull

git-update-ref-Safely update object names stored in ref

Given two parameters, storing <newvalue> in <ref> may dereference symbol references. For example, git update-ref HEAD <newvalue> will update the current branch head to a new object.

Given three parameters, after verifying that the current value of <ref> matches <oldvalue>, store <newvalue> in <ref>, which may dereference the symbol reference. For example, git update-ref refs/heads/master <newvalue> <oldvalue>, only when its current value is <oldvalue>, will the master branch head be updated to <newvalue>. You can specify 40 "0" or an empty string as <oldvalue> to ensure that the reference you create does not exist.

It also allows the ref file to become a symbolic pointer to another ref file by starting from the four-byte header sequence of ref:.

More importantly, it allows updates of ref files to follow these symbol pointers, whether they are symbolic links or these "regular file symbol references". It only follows true symbolic links when it starts with refs/: otherwise it will only try to read them and update them to regular files (i.e. it will allow the file system to follow them, but will override such symbolic links to A common file name in other locations).

If --no-deref is given, then <ref> itself is overwritten instead of following the result of symbolic pointers.
