[Bioc-devel] Git failing to push upstream to Bioc devel

Dear All,

I have updated the vignette from the stageR package.
I successfully committed the edit to my Github repo, and also wanted to push it to Bioc devel.
However, Git is rejecting my push, while my working tree seems to be clean.
Forcing the push with `git push -f` does not solve the issue.
I was wondering if there are any suggestions on how to fix this.
You can find the output from Git below.

Thank you in advance,
