Sourcetree - Fatal: ArgumentException encountered. WHY?

When doing a PULL request i always get this:


git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false fetch origin
Fatal: ArgumentException encountered.


Gratned, the Pull request is successful in the end but the fatal exception in the log always bothers me. Any ideas what is causing it?

I encountered the same problem. You can go to "Tools"-"Options", in the "Git" tab, at the bottom of this tab, see which Git version you are using. If you "use System Git", the error could be due to an old version of Git. You can either choose to update your Git of your system, or choose "Use Embedded Git", see if the issue can be solved. I solved my issue in both ways.

this seems to have sorted my issue too. Thank you!

I am also encountering the same problem. 

Did you manage to find an answer to this?

I am still getting this error. Switched between both gits, and downloaded the latest embedded git. No difference.
