Issue Report: Steam failing to update for the first time
Installed Steam and trying to run it for the first time. The Steam client tries to update itself, seems to download something and after a while errors out with the message: Fatal Error: Steam needs to be online to update.

Looking at the console output, before the error there is the message:
SteamUpdater: Error: Download of package (tenfoot_all) failed after 0 bytes (0).

On occasion also:
SteamUpdater: Error: Download of package (tenfoot_fonts_all) failed after 0 bytes (0).

This is on a Kubuntu 12.10, 64-bit system, with Nvidia Optimus (running bumblebee). The version of Steam is 10.0.16

But internet connection is ok.

After then I changed connection speed - Steam start up correctly.
Devs - check please time outs in Steam updater, I think this is the problem.

Same problem, can't update first time. Ubuntu 12.10

SirZ, how do you change connection speed?

Updated to the latest version of steam 10.0.17, however I am still getting the same issue. It seems that the client downloads more before failing.

Since I am developer myself, if there is any sort of debugging info or stack trace that I can provide that might help resolve the issue, please let me know. :) (I hear that running strace may provide hints with what is going on...)

Same here, Ubuntu 12.10 x64. Obviously, with working internet.

Is there an alternative way to download an updated client?

Actually, I rebooted and switched to a different wireless network and was able to update.

An update, also switched to a different wireless network yesterday and it seems like the client updated itself. Now I'm getting the Fatal Error: Failed to load steamui.so
PenguinsNoo... 19 dic 2012, ore 6:02 
Yet another update, I reinstalled Steam and updated on a fast network, and everything now works. :)
