I have now cloned separately for `master` and `releasebranch_7_6` /
`releasebranch_7_4` since they are also used to compile the code for
online manual creation etc.

I am getting closer...

The version I (have to) use there as it is an ancient Debian box:

neteler at osgeo6:~/cronjobs$ git --version
git version 2.1.4

It seems that it works with

git fetch --all --prune       || halt_on_error "git fetch error!"
git pull

ok, so the "git fetch" step above is not needed (in this case of only
cloning without local changes as it is the server!)
