I am getting the below error when trying to push data from local to GitHub. How can I solve this error?

! [rejected]        master -> master (non-fast-forward)
error: failed to push some refs to ''

To update your local repo to GitHub you used git push command. But if there are any changes occur in GitHub, at that situation you have to fetch your data from GitHub and pull all the changes from GitHub. You can use the below command before using push command.

$ git fetch

$ git pull origin master
