Now you come to mention it, I had the same experience a while back.

The message could certainly do with improvement, but I think this
particular case is more a side-effect of the push.default issue
currently being worked through.  Beginners expect `git push` to push a
single branch, so they see "error" and assume the single branch they
pushed must have failed.
