I got the following git message while pushing but the commit-msg hook is already installed (before committing the change). Does anyone has an idea?

Offhand, my guess would be that the commit-msg hook isn't platform
independent and is giving you problems on Windows. As a workaround,
you can amend your latest commit on master (git commit -a --amend)
and copy+paste that suggested Change-Id into the message.
