Evidently this branch existed and was not set to track
origin/dalcinl/petscdraw.  I'd have to know how this local branch was
created to explain why it's not tracking the remote branch.  You can
check if they are the same commit, then delete your local branch and
check it out again (which will make it track) or use the command below
to make it track.
