problem pushing, using atlassian/bitbucket-server:5.5.5 docker image

I follow the instructions given by bitbucket to create a repository and then clone it. This works. However when I try to push back to the repo I get this error in the log (I switchd on debugging for more info)

The following was written to stderr:
git: 'http-backend' is not a git command. See 'git --help'.

As you can see it fails due to the git-http-backend command not existing. I checked the docker image and it does not exist.

What's the issue?

My GIT client is version

GIT version in the bitbucket docker image is 2.15.0

The latest 5.5 image (5.5.5) does not contain the git-http-backend command. I've just tried the 5.6.2 image and this does. It is now working.
