Not specifying the branch still gives me a Fatal: The current branch has no upstream. Any ideas why?

Did you specify the -u flag?

Yep, I copied and pasted this exactly
git config --global alias.up 'push -u origin'

Ok, after some digging I got an alias to work. I have no idea why it works when nothing else I tried would but here it is anyway. I think it is best to paste the following into your .git-config file directly:

up = "!git push -u origin `git symbolic-ref --short HEAD`"

or if you have git 2.22

up = "!git push -u origin `git branch --show-current`"

I figured this out mostly by messing around with this Stack Overflow answer: stackoverflow.com/a/30529511/9770212
