if target branches are prefixed with the remote silently retry without

Bug Description

Several of the git ubuntu actions might require the user to specify a branch.
The obvious way to check that is in git log and similar output.
But there it is prefixed with the remote.

So the ubuntu/bionic-devel branch looks like pkg/ubuntu/bionic-devel

But if one just copies that it will fail
git ubuntu submit ... --target-branch pkg/ubuntu/bionic-devel

This affects submit and lint, maybe more.
The errors are different, the above is of submit not finding things on launchpad.

I think we should at least try to make the error more readable a la "this target branch does not exists" or even try to derive "the right thing" in those cases we can.

IMHO a nice but low prio improvement.

Changed in usd-importer:
importance: Undecided → Low
tags: added: lint submit
