I will do that, thanks but I am deeply puzzled (being a mercurial user
not a git user)

 git remote -v 

Show me:
 origin  git:// (fetch)

Git pull Already up-to-date.
* master
  remotes/origin/HEAD -> origin/master

I never understood the difference between master and

Any how 
git log shows
commit 087b0300012d14cc86dec946d6c225cdb06460a1

    Simplify mode line for emacs 27

    * tex-buf.el: Don't add an entry in `minor-mode-alist' for
    `compilation-in-progress'. In emacs 27, compile.el adds a similar
    entry in `mode-line-modes'.

Which looks odd to me.

I clone the git repository also with mercurial (and the hg-git plugin) 

Then I see 
◍  commit 9e2a8e0b59b578a6b2a980bfc181a73bc0898a12

│  Fix command expansion.
│  TeX-file-fn is gone.  Use the symbol or function TeX-active-master in
│  TeX-expand-list{,-builtin} where formally `file' (and then TeX-file-fn) was
│  used.

That looks much more logical to me

So I tried 

git checkout remotes/origin/master   
| Note: checking out 'remotes/origin/master'.
| You are in 'detached HEAD' state. You can look around, make experimental
| changes and commit them, and you can discard any commits you make in this
| state without impacting any branches by performing another checkout.
| If you want to create a new branch to retain commits you create, you may
| do so (now or later) by using -b with the checkout command again. Example:
|   git checkout -b <new-branch-name>

Frankly git is beyond me.
