SourceTree: "For security reasons, you need to distribute your appcast over SSL or sign your updates. See Sparkle's documentation for more information."

I started getting this error today and not sure why. It's preventing me from connecting to our git repo. Any suggestions?

Hi Karim,

A bad download can cause this to happen. We haven't had any reports of this problem as of yet. Could you try re-downloading SourceTree and trying again? If it's still problematic we can work from there.

Thanks very much in advance

Thanks Kieran, this fixed the problem.

I have the same problem, but only when I launch SourceTree from the command line (using stree).

I have tried deleting and redownloading the application, but it doesn't help. Any other suggestions?

Does the application work OK if you're not using stree?


Something weird is going on - if I have the app running already when using stree, it seems to launch a new application instance, showing the Sparkle dialog.

I tried reinstalling the stree utility and using it directly from the application bundle without any luck. Is there anything else I can do to help find the cause?

1.7.2 fixes this. Thanks!

The problem is back (for me at least) as of the update. I downloaded and installed freshly and that fixed it.
