You didn't get a clean merge; you got a conflict. When you get a conflict,
it is your job to look at what you merged and at the proposed result,
and resolve it yourself.

Here it may simply be that you get the conflict because you want to merge
in the addition of a block of code but in the merge target surrounding
(here: following) blocks have been removed. Now you get all of those
within the conflict marker. (Can't tell without the three versions
that have been requested.)
