This is correct that not all submodules have 2.8 branch.

You can do: `git submodule update --remote` That will update all the
submodules to latest revision of the branch they are tracking. This will
keep submodules on a detached HEAD, which is finr Git state, but might be
confusing for some use.

Alternatively, you can do `make update` in the root of the source trees.
That updates blender checkout and all submodules.

Or can manually run the following submodules update commands from gnu

  git submodule foreach "git checkout blender2.8 || git checkout master"
  git submodule foreach git pull --rebase origin
