You just don't have any branches except master on your computer.

Make sure that in .git/config, you have the line

        fetch = +refs/heads/*:refs/remotes/origin/*

(no other fetch lines should be necessary) in the section [remote
"origin"].  Then do

git fetch

After that, your repository should be populated with _every_ remote
branch available.
