Sourcetree Cloning Issues


I am trying clone any repository from BitBucket but I get the following error:

fatal: early EOF

fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly

fatal: index-pack failed

error: RPC failed; result=18, HTTP code = 200

This has just started to occur as of this week so maybe its due to a software update? Any help or advice would be appreciated.

Hi Richard,

There's a confluence page for this precise issue here. If you step through that it should help you. If not, feel free to ask again.


Hi Kieran,

Thankyou for the advice. This helped resolve the issue.



I have the same error :

error: RPC failed; result=18, HTTP code = 200

and I flowed the instructions in the link above but i didn't resolve it. any ideas how to fix it please

Thank you

I doubt that method in the link has anything to do with why it's happening on my end, either.  This just happened out of the blue with no changes to my machine, Git, SourceTree or otherwise.
