Steam broken after updating Arch

first off, sadly I can't say what exactly has been updated, I usually note all that down in txt file but had to be dumb today. Also I'm on KDE Plasma if that matters

After doing a -Syyu (mainly due to kwin_x11 issues which seem to be resolved now, whatever) Steam no longer starts up.

I tried removing everything (steam package and everything from .steam & .local/share/steam) as well as doing steam --reset after reinstall and that didn't help, so I assume it might be related to some other package being corrupted, but can't determine which one it could be, hence why I come to you folks for help. I don't think it's GPU related cause I can play 3D games fine, Wine or otherwise.

Running steam from terminal results in

There is no need to note anything in any txt file, you can just check pacman log (/var/log/pacman.log). Also, you should use [ code ][ /code ] tags for console output.


Arch + XMonad

Re: Steam broken after updating Arch

Here's the part of the log regarding this system update if you'd rather have me share this in code as well tell me

sorry about the code thing tho, was trying to find how to do it

Edit: just tried reinstalling (pacman -S) everything and it didn't help. I don't know if this is what broke the program but it was running fine right before updating
Edit2: same issue with steam-native-runtime package. Using -no-cef-sandbox doesn't help as well

See: This post.

Basically, never use -Syyu as that can unintentionally lead to a partial upgrade state where your system could be subtlety broken.  That may be the case here, and it may not, but -Syyu at your own peril.

Re: Steam broken after updating Arch

Understood. If that's the case, shouldn't using -Syu fix the issue? That too tells me the system is up to date.
(also don't see any "newer than" lines in my log, so idk if this was the issue...this time)

Tried, no luck. Since my posting here I nuked Steam a few times, downgraded Arch, updated and still no luck. I'm no longer sure this is Arch/pacman related tbh so I started a topic in steam-for-linux github, no responses yet.

Using flatpak version for now (but I really don't want to stay this way, I see flatpak as bloat, yes I'm weird.) until I find the reason/way to fix this, which I'd rather do and learn something from it instead of giving up and reinstalling Arch.

If anyone has any other ideas, of what the cause might be, I'd be happy to try whatever you'd have in mind.

Re: Steam broken after updating Arch

Thanks for the suggestion, I tried reinstalling that and it didn't work. Still using the flatpak ver.
Even after updating this many times, I still don't have a working Steam. if I get any answers elsewhere and/or find a way to fix it I will post here as well. Still running the same install
