After doing a merge, external to Eclipse via 'git merge origin/master'......then, back in Eclipse, I do a refresh, I see this message in the Git Staging view.

Can anybody tell me what this message means?

In EGits staging you you prepare your next commit based on HEAD. While you are working in this view external processes may modify the repository concurrently and modify HEAD --- which may invalidate which you have done in staging view. You may have staged a fix for a certain bug and due to actions done in parrallel by external tools the current HEAD may not even contain the bug anymore. You have to rethink about what you have staged - and that's what this warning can tell you. If you now exactly what has happened in parallel and if you have not done anything in the staging view then you may also decide to ignore this message.
