Private repository "doesn't exist"

I'm attached to a private GitHub repository, last accessed in the March 2021 timeframe, as a collaborator.  I can clone the repository, but when viewing it in my list of local SourceTree repositories, the display shows the following icon and does not recognize changes to the files.


Running Sourcetree for Windows v3.4.4 on Windows 10.  It's only this one private repository that displays this issue.

I've looked in the SourceTree logs and see the following log repeated multiple times:

ERROR [2021-04-23 09:52:56,026] [1] [SourceTree.Model.Repository] [Log] - Repository: [] does not exist

one double check question, did you check authentication to github profile? 

Yes, I re-generated my oAuth token as a precautionary measure.  What's puzzling to me is that teeny icon (with some unreadable sub-text).

Noted, hm, requested to be in that group


Because I have not seen the problem like this

I don't understand your last response.  Am I supposed to register myself for that beta group?

@lat9  nope, I just tried to find the same problem. at the moment trying to connect to my private github account. It works

@lat9  could you clone manually the repo and check via source tree?

Already did that.  Tried cloning again with the same result.
