Fixed: The installer for SourceTree update to 2.2.x cannot proceed after logging into

I got prompted to update SourceTree from 2.0.x to 2.2.x today. SourceTree downloaded the installer and proceeded to install the update. On restart, SourceTree update installed prompted me to log into my Atlassian account. I did so in the pop-up window provided. Each time I logged in (either using Google auth or the username and password), the pop-up window ended up in my account update page (in other words, I am absolutely confident I logged in) with no way to proceed (see attached screenshot):

I tried both using Google OAuth as well as the username/password.

I proceeded to delete the cache in ~/Library/Application Support/SourceTree. This still did not allow me to proceed.

What I need is the ability to proceed past the account page.


Update at 9am on 12th April 2016, UTC: I have received a message from Atlassian support that they are currently investigating. Let's hope for a speedy resolution! 

Update 10:30am on 12th April 2016, UTC: The issue is resolved. I have been able to log in - looks like everything is good to go!

Hypothesis is that an update on broke login, but this was fixed on the server side.

Way too many "me too"s on this. Just vote up the question guys, "me too" is not an answer.

Windows users are having this issue too:

Looks like Atlassian changed something about the page that breaks registration.

Same deal for me.  Maybe it's something in the name. wink

Exactly the same issue here. Tried downloading again and re-installing. Presumably the problem is on their website side.

Hi Jonathan, I have the same issue. If i reinstall, probably i am going to lose my settings. Did it happened to you?

I would assume so but since I can't get through this stage I can't get Sourcetree open to see what settings are there smile

@Alessandro - The update keeps the settings, but deleting the existing config (eg in Libraries/Application Support/SourceTree) will lose your settings

I have same problem.

I also have this problem with SourceTree for Windows version 1.8.3.

Support tickets aren't public, so let us know the outcome of it.

The issue should now be resolved. (Check the Update and comments in OP)

This is on Windows.
