Troubles with the GitHub servers

I have a public open source project hosted on a git, on the following
link: https://github.com/jeanmilost/mels

This git is composed of a trunk section, that is the active section on
which I post my daily work, a branch section, that never contained
nothing (I never required a branch until now), and a tag section, in
which content is automatically updated by the git server every time I
post a new release on it (there is a "Draft a new release" button that
allows to do that on the server side, and then the server do the job
automatically). On the PC side, I use Tortoise to synchronize my work.
Tortoise is configured to point to the above link, that let me able to
update all the project dirs (i.e. trunk, branches and tags) in one
unique update.

However I experiment several issues every time I post a release on the
git server. Indeed, Tortoise refuse to update my tags, saying that a
folder is obstructed. It's strange because I never added any folder in
the tags section manually on my PC side. Then another error says that
the XML on the server side is damaged. I recently posted a new release,
and actually I'm unable to update my local copy at all. As a last resort
I tried to checkout my entire project again in a new empty dir, but no
way, Tortoise refuse to download the new tag and stop to work with a
"damaged XML" error.

I suspect the git server to generate an incorrect XML file, but I don't
know how to verify that. However, that would be great if Tortoise may be
able to workaround a such error and continue exporting elegantly. Is
there a way to do that?

I stand at your disposal if you need more information. I am willing to
collaborate if you need to do an export test with the aforementioned
