Whenever I run
brew upgrade or
brew cleanup I get this error in the output:
fatal: Not a valid object name develop
Although, it seems that upgrading works as expected. Where does the error come from and how to fix it?

The error message comes from git - a version-control system commonly used for source code.
The error message means that you have asked git to do "something" on a name "develop" that doesn't exist yet. Typically because the branch has not been created yet, or you're targetting a repository that has been reset/cleaned or similar and the branch doesn't exist there.
