SourceTree Push Dialog Empty

Using version 3.2.6 in Windows, starting this morning my push dialog is empty. I can fetch, commit, or merge just fine. And after merging or committing the button shows how many things need to be pushed. But the push dialog is empty, as in it doesn't show any branches. Before today it always showed all the branches, with the one I had checked out selected by default. Now there are no branches in the list at all. This is true no matter which local repository I am working in.

I should also note that if I use the command line, the push works just fine.

Any hints about how to fix this are greatly appreciated.

Hi Clayton,

Thanks for reaching out! A similar issue was reported on this other post. The issue seems to be caused by an older version of Git. The solution is to upgrade Git to 2.23.0. Please update your Git and let us know if it works for you now.

Best regards,


Ana -

Thanks for the link to the other post. Unfortunately I have no control over the version of Git used at this client, so I had to roll back to v3.1.3, which also solved the problem.

I am curious as to why I can update to 3.2.6 through the application, but 3.1.3 is the latest version available on the download page.

Hi Clayton,

Why is that you have no control over the Git version? You can update your own (system Git) or the embedded Git (included with Sourcetree) as per the article Using embedded git or system git in Sourcetree.

Regarding your second question, Sourcetree versions are not rolled out for all the users at the same time, so we don't update the version on the website until all our users have been offered the new one. I'll check with the team and see if we're ready to update the link on the website. If you'd like to update your Sourcetree again, you can do so form the menu Preferences > Check for updates.

Hope that helps!
