Hi James, welcome to the Community!

We need some more details:

  1. Is Sourcetree asking you to update Bitbucket Server? Which version of Bitbucket Server are you using?
  2. Regarding Sourcetree, are you on Windows or Mac? Which version of Sourcetree do you currently have? Have you tried downloading the latest Sourcetree from our website?
  3. Can you send us a screenshot of the message you get?

Let us know,


Hi Ana, we've sorted out the problem now, thanks.

Where the update is disabled, we downloaded the latest Sourcetree version and it automatically updated once the install began.

The question remains as to why some instances of Sourcetree have the "update" button disabled - is there some setting for this?
