sourcetree push git-LFS fails with missing refs but CLI succeeds Edited

We have a problem when pushing a git-lfs enabled repo (master and branches all have the same problem)


When we push via source tree ( Git (system 2.16.1 64bit) and Git-LFS (3.2.4 and bitbucket adapter 1.0.6) fails with a fatal error

Git LFS: (3 of 4 files) 1.53 GB / 1.89 GB
Git LFS: (3 of 4 files) 1.53 GB / 1.89 GB
error: failed to push some refs to ''


Yet if we push with CLI (mintty 2.8.3 x_64-pc-msys) it succeeds. 


Two things to note:

  1. The only difference we can see is is authentication - sourcetree is authenticated with 1023 key generated by putty while CLI is with a 4096 key generated by OpenSSH from the command line. Could this be the culrpit?
  2. A GIT_TRACE when pushing with CLI shows a skipping files message, is SourceTree not handling these and causing the error?

Any thoughts gratefully received.

Could you try enabling "Enable verbose console output" under Options > Git, and also enable "Always display full console output" under Options > General? After doing that, could you try pushing again and then provide the output?
