OAuth authentication results in "repository not found"


I have been using sourcetree  (version 3.3.8) with a github repository and git (version 2.26). 
Till now, I have used basic authentication (Tools-> Authentication, Hosting service: github, Host URL: https://www.github,com, Preferred protocol: HTTPS, Authentication: Basic) ) and 
it has worked just fine. 

I would like to move to OAuth Authentication, because Github has sent out the following 

When I do change to OAuth and press "refresh OAuth Token", a new brower tab opens up
with an empty page and it says "Authentication OK" in sourcetree.
However, if I try to pull or push something, it says 
remote: Repository not found.
fatal: repository '  ... ' not found

I have made sure that  I was logged in into github in an open browser tab before pressing the "refresh OAuth Token" , but that did not make a difference. 

In my github account, I do see sourcetree listed under settings->Applications->Authorized OAuth Apps. 


If anybody has any pointers on how to resolve this, I would very much appreciate it.
