I would ensure you are running Git 2.20.1 or higher, either but updating Sourcetree to v2.0.17 and then updating the embedded Git in the Tools/Options/Git tab or by installing Git for Windows 2.20.1 directly and configuring Sourcetree to use it as a System Git in Tools/Options/Git.

There were some problems with the Git Credential Manager GCM that is bundled with Git for Windows and that error sounds like one of them

Hi Michael

Thank you, updating git helped.
