fatal: unable to find remote helper for 'https'

I made a new repository in bitbucket, and then pressed the "clone in sourcetree" button, and when sourcetree opens up, it rejects the path / URL.

It says this is not a valid source path / url, and when I click on details, an error message appears saying fatal: Unable to find remote helper for 'https'.

I have tried deleting and creating new repositories and uninstalling and installing sourcetree several times, but none of these worked..
