I was having a similar problem after I recently upgraded to Ubuntu 16.04. I found this answer and Jonathan's purge and reinstall commands took care of it for me. Hope this helps.

sudo apt-get purge runit
sudo apt-get purge git-all
sudo apt-get purge git
sudo apt-get autoremove
sudo apt update
sudo apt install git
