PROBLEM DESCRIPTION

"Could not access submodule" error when pulling recursively with Git 2.22.0.
This issue causes if there is submodule in submodule.

At first, we reported this problem for Git for Windows:
https://github.com/git-for-windows/git/issues/2361
But we received the answer that it was reproduced on Linux too.

Also, the same problem is described here: 
https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab/issues/27287

STEPS TO REPRODUCE

Please use my simple test repository to reproduce the problem:
https://github.com/agmikhailov/example2361.git

It is just an empty repository with one submodule (https://github.com/agmikhailov/example2361M1.git) 
and one submodule of submodule (https://github.com/agmikhailov/example2361M2.git):

git clone https://github.com/agmikhailov/example2361.git
cd example2361/
git submodule init
git submodule update
git pull --recurse-submodules=true

ACTUAL RESULT

"git --recurse-submodules=true" command fails with message "Could not access submodule":

$ git --recurse-submodules=true
Fetching submodule example2361M1
Could not access submodule 'example2361M2'

EXPECTED RESULT

All submodules are successfully updated by "git --recurse-submodules=true" command.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Git version 2.20.1 does not have this problem. 
So we had to downgrade Git to work with submodules.

Best regards,
