Branchs on Git Remote not Updating


I Just installed SourceTree to test the software and i'm facing something that i don't know if it's a bug or a missconfiguration:

I have a local repository that track two GitHub's Repositories, my own repository and the repository where i fork from, when i try to pull from the repository where i fork from i click on the "Pull" button on toolbar and select "upstream" (the name of the remote) i think this should refresh the list of branchs in the remote but after a while trying to refresh the list is showed empty, the repository in question is the ofical Zend Framework 2 wich has a lot of branchs and PR's, perhaps by the number of remote branchs SourceTree could be timing out the request, is there something i can do to solve it?

The same thing happens also on ZF2-Docs Repository but in this one besides this problem i have another one, on the sidebar no branch is showed on "upstream" remote, and i don't know how to refresh this list.

Hi Paulo. Could you provide the URL to the repository in question? (The Git URL you're attempting to clone from, that is). Thanks in advance!

Hi Kieran,

I'm not attempting to clone teh repository, it's a repository that i alredy have cloned before install SorceTree, i'm trying to do a Git Pull, but the repos are these:

Also, here it's my remote list on both repositorites

D:\Projetos\ZendFramework [master]> git remote -v
origin (fetch)
origin (push)
upstream (fetch)
upstream (push)


D:\Projetos\ZendDocs [master]> git remote -v
origin (fetch)
origin (push)
upstream (fetch)
upstream (push)

The list of the origen branchs are been updated correctly, but not from upstream
