Clone/Push/Checkout etc never complete, throw no errors

Switching from my old computer to a new one, I can't clone, push or pull. Sourcetree throws no errors, but it never completes the action. Using git bash, these actions complete without issue, but I want the sourcetree interface.


I have tried:

Making an exception for Sourcetree in the firewall, and also entirely disabling the firewall

Removing the Windows Credentials for anything git related and restarting the computer

Turning on all console log options I can find in hopes of getting more information, but it only shows e.g "Pushing to" for several hours


My git repository is up and available, I can view it in the browser and access it from other machines.


Any tips would be greatly appreciated.

Okay, I think I managed to solve it. I tried to do a push from the command line and it asked me for my github login (5 times in a row?) after which it seemed to work! So apparently I wasn't logged into git properly. It would be helpful with an error message and/or a login pop-up appearing when trying to push/pull under these circumstances.
