Same issue here!

Ok, is to blame


In the terminal:

sudo opensnoop -n Sourcetree

When updating, shows up here for me:



Hi, good to know that it is Sparkle. But how can this answer be an "accepted answer" when it doesn't answer the original question - "how can i update"?

I agree, IMHO only the developer can fix/update the installer (QA should test this before releasing :)

For me the task was to get my hands on the new version, which I could achieve.

What worked for me was getting rid of the old installation I got by using .dmg file and using homebrew instead.

homebrew install sourcetree

That worked perfectly smooth.

Same issue on MacOS Big Sur 11.2.1

Same issue on macOS 10.15.7
