This is not a valid source path / URL.

I've been using sourcetree for over a year with no problems. I had issues running brew update and ended up reinstalling brew. Since then I get the message "This is not a valid source path /URL" when trying to clone any repository from our gitHub repos using SourceTree. The details show this:

launch path not accessible

launch path not accessible

abort: repository not found!

launch path not accessible

I have access to the gitHub repo via a webbrowser and I can clone down repos using command line git.

Any thoughts on why SourceTree thinks the URL is not valid/accessible?

Also, I've lost access to all my currently cloned repos in SourceTree (I can still interact with them with git command line) , I get this error when trying to open them in SourceTree:

'git log' failed with code -1:'launch path not accessible

Thanks in advance for advice!

This issue was that somehow my version of git was updated and sourcetree did not get updated to point to an available version of git. I found the solution here:

I also had this error because I hadn't enabled git support.
