git status sucks
Switch branches/tags
Nothing to show
Fetching latest commit…
Cannot retrieve the latest commit at this time.
Failed to load latest commit information.

You've been using git for years, you really don't need git status to tell you things like:

(use "git reset HEAD ..." to unstage)
(use "git add ..." to update what will be committed)
(use "git checkout -- ..." to discard changes in working directory)
(use "git add ..." to include in what will be committed)

So use this instead which gives you diffstats and local tracking branch information.

Untracked files:
