Xcode 8 source control broken

I came across strange issue with source control (git) on Xcode 8.

While removing some old, already merged to master branches the popup appeared stating

Couldn’t communicate with a helper application
.

The branches were removed but another issue came up, so when commiting I have something like this:

Repository View
seem to be ok:

Project View
should look somewhat the same but is kinda weird:

I can commit but when trying to remove a branch the warning popup still appears.
I've searched for solution, found this one:
xcode 7.2 couldn’t communicate with a helper application
but when I check in Terminal with
xcrun git config --global user.email
and
xcrun git config --global user.name
it gives me the proper values.

I use SourceTree as well and it works flawlessly without any warnings.

All other projects are ok - no warnings and no weird
Project View
.

Update:

All other projects have normal
Project View
but apparently the warning popup
Couldn’t communicate with a helper application
appears when I try to remove a branch.

Any help would appreciated.

Installing Xcode 9 and updating project solved the problem
