Lets keep this open until the upstream bug has been fixed. For anyone
else having the same problem, this can be worked-around per the Geary
FAQ:

Google now requires email clients implement its proprietary protocol to
sign in by default. As a result, you may need to update your Google
settings to allow Geary to connect to your GMail account via IMAP. The
setting to change depends on whether you have 2-Step authentication
enabled for your Google account:

If 2-step verification is enabled, you should create an App Password,
and use that in your Geary account settings:

If 2-step verification is not enabled, you will need to allow access for
"Less Secure Apps":

A future version of Geary will support Google's proprietary protocol.
