Resolving “Unknown SSL protocol error in connection to bitbucket.org:443”

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/11/24

A while ago, I had this error on BitBucket:

Running git.exe with arguments "fetch --prune" failed with return code 128 and error output: "fatal: unable to access 'https://%account%@bitbucket.org/%user%/%repository%.git/': Unknown SSL protocol error in connection to bitbucket.org:443

A quick search for “Unknown SSL protocol error in connection to bitbucket.org:443” pointed me to a comment by Ludwik Trammer on an answer by Jordfräs:

I resolved the issue by upgrading from git 1.8 to git 2.0.

Which reminded me this was a Windows system, where there is no package manager that verifies how far your non-system software is behind.

One day, I will write a script that finds out about the git version history and inform me of major/minor versions I’ve skipped.

Some notes for that:

Probably I will need to do something similar for Mercurial/hg in the future as well.
