Please make sure you have the correct access rights
and the repository exists.

The repository definitely still exists and I had access rights to everything before I did the update.

There is a  known defect with 1.6.24.  They've released 1.6.25 which resolves it.

The best answer is to never, ever, upgrade sourcetree to latest version (applies to both Windows and Mac versions) if you don't have time to help report bugs. New versions, even minor upgrades, of SourceTree very often bring a large number of problems and crashes. If you install a new version of SourceTree, make sure to keep a backup of an older installer, so you can go back when needed (very often you will need to).
