Abort repository error when cloning in Sourcetree on new mac installation


Very strange issue, just setting up new mac with Sourcetree.


Installed Sourcetree and added my bitbucket account to preferences.


Successfully signed in using OAuth bitbucket google account...

Which has created my ssh keys here...Screenshot 2021-12-21 at 10.47.20.png

I then added this to my .ssh config...Screenshot 2021-12-21 at 11.02.57.png

My repositories all load fine in Sourcetree remote tab...

But when I try to clone my repo, there is spinning wheel and it never loads any branch information...

If I try to clone this, I get repo abort repository error...

I'm really struggling to figure out what I've done wrong here, I've never had this issue before setting up on other macs.


Any suggestions would be amazing thanks.

Ok so I'm pretty sure I've worked out the problem.


For some reason I thought Sourcetree would automatically add the generated SSH key to my bitbucket account...


...but I remember now, I have to manually manage ssh keys in my bitbucket account settings.


I will update tomorrow... but I am 100% sure by adding my newly generated key (for my office mac), to my bitbucket SSH keys settings will fix the issue 👌🏼

I will update here tomorrow when I've fixed the issue. 👍🏼

Nope, by adding the SSH key to my keys does not fix the issue.

I am still getting the same abort error.
