Fixed it myself. My global gitconfig file was damaged and contained only half of the data.

what you fixed please let us know me and my team member are also facing issue from today morning

Don't remember, but here is my (adjusted) gitconfig file:

name = Lastname, Firstname
email =
[difftool "sourcetree"]
cmd = '' \"$LOCAL\" \"$REMOTE\"
[mergetool "sourcetree"]
cmd = "'' "
trustExitCode = true
editor = 'C:\\Users\\XXXXXXX\\AppData\\Local\\Programs\\Microsoft VS Code\\Code.exe' --wait
