Issue report: "Purchase error" after activating a few games
I just received Steam Linux beta access and started redeeming my games from Indie Royale and HIB. The first few activations went successfully, but then it started showing the following error message every time:

Purchase error
An unexpected error has occurred. Your subscription to the following items has not been completed.
Please contact Steam Support using the link below.

The failing items list is empty.

Every time this error occurs, the following line is also printed to terminal:
SteamPurchaseReceipt.cpp (420) : Assertion Failed: false

Now I even get this error for codes that used to work earlier today. Normally it would cause a "you already own this game" error.

Restarting Steam does not help.
