Hi Mohammed, welcome to the Community!

We'll need more information to help you troubleshoot this issue, can you please provide the following?:

  1. What steps are you following to open/clone those repositories
  2. Which Sourcetree version are you using?
  3. Which OS do you have? (If Windows, make sure Internet Explorer is updated to the latest one as Sourcetree relies on it for the authentication step)

Let us know!

Best regards,
