Recent Update broke steam [Solved]

Earlier today I updated

libxcrypt (4.4.35-1 -> 4.4.36-1)
libxml2 (2.10.4-6 -> 2.11.4-1)
lib32-libxcrypt (4.4.35-1 -> 4.4.36-1)
appstream-glib (0.8.2-2 -> 0.8.2-3)
frei0r-plugins (2.3.0-1 -> 2.3.0-2)
gstreamer (1.22.4-1 -> 1.22.4-2)
libgudev (237-2 -> 238-1)
gst-plugins-base-libs (1.22.4-1 -> 1.22.4-2)
gst-libav (1.22.4-1 -> 1.22.4-2)
gst-plugins-bad-libs (1.22.4-1 -> 1.22.4-2)
libxslt (1.1.37-3 -> 1.1.38-1)
gst-plugins-bad (1.22.4-1 -> 1.22.4-2)
gst-plugins-base (1.22.4-1 -> 1.22.4-2)
gst-plugins-good (1.22.4-1 -> 1.22.4-2)
lib32-libgudev (237-2 -> 238-1)
lib32-libxml2 (2.10.4-5 -> 2.11.4-1)
lib32-libxslt (1.1.37-2 -> 1.1.38-1)
mariadb-libs (10.11.4-1 -> 11.0.2-2)
mariadb-clients (10.11.4-1 -> 11.0.2-2)
mariadb (10.11.4-1 -> 11.0.2-2)

and it fundamentally broke steam startup giving an error

"Assertion 'device' failed at src/libsystemd/sd-device/device-private.c:103, function device_get_tags_generation(). Aborting."

on both the beta and stable client even after reboots , fsck and memory checks

reverting the packages using downgrade aur made everything work ok again

my guess is that the libgudev package is the one that broke things but i'm hitting the limit of my debugging skills

Re: Recent Update broke steam [Solved]

I just updated my desktop which I haven't used in over a month and ran into this same issue. After downgrading libgudev and lib32-libgudev from 238-1 to 237-2, Steam started working again.

Re: Recent Update broke steam [Solved]

I have this problem myself but have unfortunately cleared my pacman cache earlier for space.  I hope this is resolved soon.

Edit: After reading the most excellent initial post I got downgrade from AUR and it's working again.

lib32-libgudev is not installed on my system, that's the reason.

Re: Recent Update broke steam [Solved]

At the bug listing on Steam it mentions that having lib32-libudev0-shim installed prevents this.  I tried it and it works for me.

Re: Recent Update broke steam [Solved]

Sorry to necrobump but I just now had this happen again after updating today and at github I found that a quick fix was installing lib32-libnm.  This is probably only relevant to the people that have libgudev installed.

Re: Recent Update broke steam [Solved]

Hi guys, if not appropriate I will open a new thread. Same issues here after the upgrade. The only thing is that i have installed steam using flatpak. I think those multilib needs are not applicable to my case. Can you suggest the proper way to solve the issue? Do I need to reinstall without flatpak?
At the moment launching from the shell I obtain the following messages:

Re: Recent Update broke steam [Solved]

You could try searching here.  I don't think my solution relates to you but surely somebody using flatpak had your exact issue.  I would not use flatpak for this but your case may be different.  I don't use it because I use mods and addons so I need to change things in a wine prefix in the steam directory.  Flatpak adds another layer to that.  If you don't mod stuff though it's definitely simpler to use flatpak.

I currently have the same issue with the steam-native and steam-runtime repository version.

Re: Recent Update broke steam [Solved]

I also got Steam not working today but I did not had the xdg-desktop-portal-gnome package installed

sudo pacman -Syu lib32-libnm fixed the issue for me.
