If you're using Steam on Linux and it breaks after the last update, try removing yourself from the beta status.
mv ~/.local/share/Steam/package/beta ~/steambetabackup

Move the file back if you want to go back to beta.

that does not work. I removed my Steam application and removed the .steam folder from my /home/username and downloaded the latest build and it fails.

Thanks, on an added note the first time you start Steam after doing this it will still complain about the missing package but Steam will update itself after you close the terminal

I had to run "mv ~/Steam/package/beta ~/steambetabackup" though

Steam is broken and will not update nor work. I am using Ubuntu 12.10 64bit and it fails to update.

Hello.

I had the "Steam" folder in my home directory. I removed everything from it except the "SteamApps" folder. After that I removed everything in the ~/.local/share/Steam

Then I ran steam from the terminal and it displayed a dialog saying: "Did you move Steam?..." and with two options. I choose Reinstall. It redownloaded the client in ~/.steam, move my previous "SteamApps" folder in ~/.steam/steam(which actually is a symlink to ~/.local/share/...) and it worked.

Hope it helps.

I'm seeing the same problem after a recent update.

Okay i solved:
Go to steam, remove all files (without steam.sh, and steamaps) and run steam.sh :)
Download all :)

If you don't want to reinstall your games do this!

Go to your home folder, press ctrl+H to see hidden files, open the steam shortcut, select everything but the SteamApps folder and delete. Launch steam again and click Reinstall. This fixed it for me while keeping my downloaded games.

hello. also I have this problem and how to fix Nose. anyone know anything?

On Debian Wheezy 64, removing the "beta" file (2nd post) fixed this issue
SupaSaru Feb 23, 2013 @ 2:17pm 
The beta version is fixed now. You can put the beta file back if you want, or just run the current release.

Had this problem earlier today, fixed it by removing the Steam folder in my home directory (kept SteamApps though), uninstalled Steam, and then reinstalled using the .deb
