Sourcetree stopped working (WinGit still works)

I have a bitbucket repository and in the last week SourceTree won't pull or push to it. WinGit works fine, but both the  GUI SourceTree and command line Git you get by Action->Open in terminal give the login prompt but indicate failure when the password is typed in. The command line one says:

"Logon failed, use crl+c to cancel...."

I can log on fine to the website, and WinGit and git in cygwin works fine.

However, on another computer GitEye seems to have stopped working on this repo too, The error here is cannot open "git-receive-pack". Again cygwin command line git works fine with the same PC/repository.

Both use the https URL.

If you haven't already can you upgrade to Git 2.19.2/Git Credential Manager 1.18.3?


I've upgraded windows git (, sourcetree, git credential manager ( via the exe installer and via copying the .zip contents into the ~\AppData\.. folder as the installer didn't seem to upgrade that version) and it still just keeps giving me the Atlassian login, popping up repeatedly when I type the password. The upgraded windows command line git still works fine.

Actions->open in terminal  is now broken. A window flashs up briefly before disappearing. This happened when I upgraded SourceTree, before i upgraded Git for windows.
