what's your config?

I haven't set that config, I use the default (i.e. push.default=simple). For me git push origin -u works.

Setting git config --global push.default upstream I get the same error as you.

The OP suggested to use git config --global push.default current though, which has the desired effect (i.e. git push sets the remote branch as the tracking branch).
