A couple of things to note:
If you encounter a "Disk read error" when downloading the patch for Mac, please uninstall the game by right clicking on the game in your library and selecting "Delete local content". Then, reinstall the game.
Unfortunately, we're experiencing some issues with the Steam overlay on Linux. For this reason, the Linux version of AWL is still at 2.4.0. We're working to get this resolved and get 2.5.0 to Linux ASAP. The good news is that we're also making progress on other Linux issues as well.
