This is the expected output of an attempt to shallow clone with the Jenkins git plugin. Command line git reports that surprising message. The Jenkins git plugin ignores that surprising message from command line git and continues the shallow checkout. The message in the log seems to indicate that the job continued after that message was reported.
If the job failed or some other unexpected condition happened, please describe that condition in detail.
