I suddenly started getting error when doing a pull from remote repo: error:14077410:SSL routines:SSL23_GET_SERVER_HELLO:sslv3 alert handshake failure

Everything was working well till last night and nothing has been changed.

I got it resolve, by uninstalling sourcetree and git also and doing a fresh install of sourcetree with integrated GIT. Please give it a try.

Спасибо большое, все решилось!

Update Embedded Git worked for me. I didn't understand any of the text but I DID understand the image. Thanks!

That worked, thanks! I used system Git, which was v 1.x, and switching to Embedded Git, which is 2.x, and updating it helped. It looks like Atlassian changed something in Bit Bucket over the weekend, and it rendered it incompatible with the old Git versions. Probably, upgrading system Git would help too.

My similar issue was resolved by re-installing GIT. Due to the system limitation, I had to install GIT version 2.10.0.

I managed to fix my issue by



A. Go to "Tools > Options > Git" and selecting "Use System Git" instead of "Use Embedded Git".

I have the same error

fatal: unable to access 'https://******/***.git/': error:14077410:SSL routines:SSL23_GET_SERVER_HELLO:sslv3 alert handshake failure

I also have the same error. VERY FRUSTRATING

Dave Rushton December 3, 2018

I have used SourceTree for the past 3 - 4 years and had no issues until now. I uninstalled and reinstalled both Git and SourceTree and I still get the same error
