Not able to push to remote: unauthorized

Using SourceTree, when I try to push to the remote bitbucket repository, I am asked to log into the Atlassian account. I tried both the username as well as the email. I tried both the password for the account as well as the app password. It throws this error:

remote: Invalid username or password
fatal: Authentication failed for ''

I then use Terminal to run the "git push" command, that same login dialog box pops up and I get this error in the message window:

fatal: ArgumentOutOfRangeException encountered.
Specified argument was out of the range of valid values.
Parameter name: resultType

Then another dialog pops up asking for the bitbucket username which I put in the same username as that of my Atlassian account. Then it asks for the password. I use the same one that was throwing the inavlid error. It worked and I am able to push my changes to the remote repository. 

I'm positive of the username and password as I am able to do it through git command. So what is the difference between using SourceTree?
