Some of members in my developer team are having issues checking and and switching to new branches. We are using Sourcetree with our repositories stored on Bitbucket. They are able clone the repository fine but when they attempt to checkout a remote branch, the checkout process gets stuck and displays these logs.
bash: /dev/tty: No such device or address
error: failed to execute prompt script (exit code 1)
stty: 'standard input': Inappropriate ioctl for device
If you cancel the process, you'll see the all changes from the branch appear in workspace as unstaged files. If you try and do any other operations, your told another git process is running since the lock file wasn't removed as the checkout process was never able to complete.
The issue affects the members for multiple git repositories making me assume it could be an account based issue.
Any ideas what could be going on?
