Two things happen when I try to check out a remote branch from my bitbucket repository.
Also there is a red "!" symbol by the remote icon in Sourcetree, and when I go in and edit the settings of the repo that goes away. However I am still unable to checkout remote branches and it crashes when I try.
I can fetch, pull, and push to the repo and am getting updates when I need to pull even though I can't checkout a remote branch. I can create a new local on and push it to Bitbucket, but any new remote branches I cannot checkout.
The only way I was able to checkout a remote branch was to either use the git command line, or uninstalling Sourcetree and installing version 188.8.131.5244 of Sourcetree from the website. Once installed I get a notifiation to update to the most current version and if I do that I am unable to checkout remote branches.
So I am unable to update Sourcetree cause it will break my remote repo. Has anyone else had this problem?
I have been having this problem for sometime. It used to be a nice feature but now I always copy the git command and use git to fetch and check out the branch. I did try to revert to an earlier version but the problem still remained. I will try to 3.2.6 version and see how we go.
Same issue here with 3.3.9.
Event viewer shows pretty much an identical error to that explained here :
Reverted to 3.2.6 and all is well.
I've had these problem too since upgrading to 3.3.4
I have the "!" symbol too and have to edit the settings before I can checkout. The setting changes aren't persisted so I have to do it every time I start SourceTree - crash or no crash.
I can check out by branching the "remotes" tree and selecting "checkout", but if I use Respository->Checkout or if I "Check out in SourceTree" via Stash I get the crash immediately.
