Getting errors when switching branch after SourceTree has been updated to version

The following error is being reported:

git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false checkout develop --progress
error: unknown option `progress'

Anyone who encountered the same problem?

best regards

I could just resolve the problem by updating the embedded Git-Version in Tools->Options

Now I'm having embedded Git Version 2.16.2 installed and switching the branch operates correctly now.


Yes, you are right. It seems to work correctly after updating embedded Git Version.

Unfortunately, yes.
I have just updated this morning and now I'm getting the same type of errors...

But `checkout <branch>` using the terminal works.

I suppose it's a GUI bug.
