I have been using Sourcetree, Git & Bitbucket for years. Lately, when I try to push a change, Sourcetree displays a popup 'Atlassian - Login to your account' It correctly displays my username and I enter my password. The popup disappears, then reappears a few seconds later. I am using the latest version on Sourcetree (18.104.22.168) and an embedded version of Git (just updated to 2.17.1) but same error occurs with non-embedded Git. I have reset Atlassian password and I can access Bitbucket using my password, the same password which fails in Sourcetree! If the push proceeds, I get the error below. Any help greatly appreciated. Many thanks Rob.

Completed with errors, see above.
I worked out a solution. My login worked with BitBucket, so it was OK. The same BitBucket login worked with a Push using GIT GUI, so I uninstalled SourceTree rebooted the PC then re-installed SourceTree. It is now happy. Frustrating, but I know what to do next time this happens.
