Can't connect since update
I opened steam today and saw that an update was available. It said it was a minor update and wasn't the one from 19/02.
After updating, whenever I try to connect Steam claims that I am not connected to the internet or my connection isn't configured correctly for Steam. Yet it worked just fine before the update.

Is this a bug with the latest update? Does anyone else have this problem?

Same problem and not only on Linux. Reboot helped me. It happens quite often.
Now tell me why i should like Steam with their DRM stuff. All i need from the service is to download and update my games and is able to practically any package manager in Linux. I don't need a social crap, i don't need a program that eats 200MB of RAM, slow, and sends my internet addresses that i have visited on the internet. There is no escape?

I've had that a couple of times after updates. A reboot always seems to have fixed it for me. Alternatively launching from the terminal works and usually clears the problem without a reboot.

Yes, rebooting worked (as before).

And now it's not working anymore! Not able to log-in again with the Linux client - even if I reboot…! What did Steam change for that! :O I wonder!

I am getting the same, also seeing this message in the terminal:
** (steam:3516): WARNING **: Unknown device type 14

** (steam:3516): WARNING **: Could not create object for /org/freedesktop/NetworkManager/Devices/0: unknown object type

* puh * connecting again!
As I did not do anything inbetween there may have been some other trouble on the server side…

Today i observed the same thing..."could not connect to the steam network"

If I keep trying steam do connect ...after a random number of retries ( some times steam do connect from the first try, but most of the times it need like 10-15 retries )

It used to work ok until yesterday , when i did installed the last update (beta) , but if I remember correctly it did connected after the update from the first try. May be a problem with Valve Steam network or servers.

I dont use NetworkManager either, so i didnt even installed it , but this is not the problem. BTW...that is a warning not an error.

** (steam:17335): WARNING **: Could not initialize NMClient /org/freedesktop/NetworkManager: The name org.freedesktop.NetworkManager was not provided by any .service files

** (steam:17335): WARNING **: _nm_remote_settings_ensure_inited: (NMRemoteSettings) error initializing: The name org.freedesktop.NetworkManager was not provided by any .service files

Gentoo 64bit, Steam Linux (w/ Beta Update opt in, all updates installed).

It worked for me after a reboot (Mint 16 64bit)

There is. You don't "have to" use Steam and its services at all. You don't even have to use a computer if you don't want to.

now looks like is ok here too......i did 5 connect tests ...all connected from first try.... no reboot needed here

I never reboot my linux rig , unless I upgrade kernel, change hardware, or .... lose electricity :)

Yeah the typical response. So, you consider normal the situation is now and not have to change anything?

This is a conversation about a technical issue. Feel free to discuss Steam's business strategies (as far as I'm concerned) but this isn't the thread, or the forum, for it.

I think there was a problem with Steam servers because after 30 minutes later this morning it was all back to normal.
