Hi Brian, welcome to the Community! 

First of all, that's quite an old version of Sourcetree and we recommend you to upgrade to a more recent one, you can download them from our archive.

We need to figure out if this is a problem with Bitbucket, Mercurial or Sourcetree:

  1. What version of Mercurial, Python and SSL are you using?
  2. Have you tried pushing from the command line? Do you get the same error?
  3. Are you using a proxy?
  4. Have you tried SSH? For more info, you can read Set up an SSH key with Sourcetree on Mac.

Let us know!
