Update to / git 2.14.1 failed, can't SSH now

SourceTree notified me of an update, so I did.

Not much happening though, no feedback either, still at, decide to restart SourceTree.

Now have, open release notes.

See that "SRCTREE-2098 Upgraded to Git 2.14.1", check tools / options / git.

See that embedded git is still at 2.10 or smth (why not update automatically?), decide to update embedded git.

Download starts, extracting starts, extracting fails. (see below for error info)

Restart SourceTree, try again, same result.

On restart a message that SourceTree can't login via SSH because some embedded git file is not found (new version, no rollback on fail?).
