I tried fixes mentioned by @Mike Corsaro and @fairful. Doesn't seem to work for me. I tried updating the embedded Git and also install the versions mentioned. It doesn't seem to fix the issue. I have attached the details of my embedded Git version.Embedded.png

Hello! This is a long-running problem with the git-credential-manager. To solve it:

  1. Download git-credential-manager 1.18.3
  2. Install Sourcetree 3.0.12
  3. When prompted again enter your credentials OR add your account via OAuth in the Accounts tab in Options

The suggested solution is not working for me.  Oddly, in Sourcetree, if I go to Tools/Options/Authentication, then click Edit on the account and then Refresh Password, I can enter the same credentials I do in the above dialog and this succeeds.  BUt entering them into the dialog fails.  THis is with the two items listed above installed, and a reboot, just for luck!

Update:  I managed to sort this by updating the embedded Git version in Tools/Options/Git

I wish I'd managed to update the embedded Git. Instead it gets to the "extracting" phase and then states that the download failed.
