Assuming you have no uncommitted changes, the most simple way is to
"rm" and "git commit -a".

Which mistake is it? Is it related to the "fatal: bad object" issue

It's not a bad idea, it's only more complicated. When resolving
conflicts, I don't know if there are other ways than using update-index.

Good catch.

It's difficult to explain everything. Documentation in README is not
meant to be a subsitute for man pages and generally Git official docs.
