I am currently working on one of the branches we have.
Now, one more branch got added and I want to switch to that Branch.
However, I could not see newly created branches anywhere in E-Git.
Is there any way to fetch the branches through E-Git and switch to one of it?

I know I can fetch the branches from command prompt using
git remote update but wondering if I can do the same through E-Git.

Actually when we right click on the repository and 'fetch from upstream' or 'Pull', new branches also gets downloaded.
However, in my case the exception was occurring in the background. I had some local branch pointing to remote branch which got deleted.
This error was interrupting the fetch or pull operation and I was not able to see newly added branches.
I edited .git/config file or relevant repository to deleted the stale locale branch. This resolved my issue.

JGit's FetchCommand doesn't yet support the prune option provided by "git fetch --prune" [1]
