fatal: could not read Username for '': Device not configured


I updated to SourceTree v2.7.2 on my Mac and when doing a push/pull/fetch I receive the error:


git -c diff.mnemonicprefix=false -c core.quotepath=false -c credential.helper=sourcetree fetch origin

fatal: could not read Username for '': Device not configured


This issue happened immediately after update. I've tried Basic SSH and HTTPS, as well as OAuth  and removing the Sourcetree folder from my library folder. No luck.

I still have this error in version 3.3.8

This was a bug we have fixed in the build 2.7.2 (167). Please update the build and this issue should be resolved.
