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.

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.
