About keeping forked repository up to date

I wonder, what is the best way to keep its forked repository up to
date, when we have new "branches".

Recently I submitted several merge requests for Tumbler (each of them
are new branch), one was committed, but others no.

I follow these steps (on my local machine):
git remote add upstream https://gitlab.xfce.org/xfce/tumbler.git

git remote -v
origin	git at gitlab.xfce.org:OlivierDuchateau/tumbler.git (fetch)
origin	git at gitlab.xfce.org:OlivierDuchateau/tumbler.git (push)
upstream	https://gitlab.xfce.org/xfce/tumbler.git (fetch)
upstream	https://gitlab.xfce.org/xfce/tumbler.git (push)

git fetch upstream

Follow by
git merge upstream/master

Everything is fine, but now when I want to push my changes (I have fix
for make distcheck pipeline, and other improvement) on my repository,
process fails.
