Error in ERPNext After Update

I did update to my erpnext yesterday but after that it has been broken.
The error it shows clearly tells that I did some changes in the source code of and, I renamed the original files and made changes in the copied file and after the error I deleted the copy and renamed the original files back. Now it says either commit.
Can anybody tell me what to do now? Below is the error I am getting:

There are some local changes, commit your changes and pull again.

Yes, I know that I have done change, but I don’t know how to commit these changes and and how to do a pull back.


git commit -all

Output: fatal: Not a git repository (or any of the parent directories): .git

  1. cd frappe-bench/app/app_name
  2. git status (shows list of newly added and modified files)
  3. git add file_path or .(to add all files)
  4. git commit -m"commit message"

then come back to frappe-bench and execute bench update

Thanks Saurabh,
It was really helpful for me.
I appreciate if you can tell me what is this:
Even, I have used the command provided by you but, I don’t have any idea about it.
