Hi Joe, is this only happening in Sourcetree or also in the command line? Can you try and let us know? 

If this is happening only in Sourcetree you can try removing your credentials and adding your account again, and if that doesn't work, wipe your Sourcetree preferences.

Let us know if you can push now!
