I have been using JGit successfully to do many of the basic operations i need on a Git repository, but i have been struggling with doing this one for a while now and could use some help.

I have found the following way to unstage files that partly works (works for some files) but does not work at all for others. Ie. the index is left in an incorrect state.

State before staging:
modified: file1
missing: file2
untracked: file3

state after staging:
changed: file1
removed: file2
added: file3

all good so far, now after running the commands below to unstage all files i get the incorrect state below:

State after unstaging:
removed: file1
untracked: file1 --> this files shows up with two statuses which is wrong and it is marked incorrectly in both, ie. it should be modified
removed: file2 --> this should go back to missing
untracked: file3 --> this is correct



Commands i use to achive partial unstage:

repository.getIndex().remove(getWorkignDirectoryAsFile(), new File(getWorkignDirectoryAsFile(), fileName));

repository.getIndex().write();
