How to bypass "infinite loop" with update
Please wait for steam to automatically update your game client during Major Update.
Please do not force manual update when servers are under maintenance during Major Update.

If, after Major Update goes live (official announcement is visible) and you are in update loop, please check options listed below.
Option no.2 - preferred option
  1. Pause the game download in Steam.
  2. Find the War Thunder folder, and rename it (e.g. "War Thunder1").
  3. Uninstall War Thunder in Steam library.
  4. Rename the folder back to its original name.
  5. Find War Thunder in Steam client, and click "Install".
  6. Steam will verify files, and download the missing ones, if necessary.

Option no.1
  1. Please click RMB on War Thunder in your Steam library.
  2. Select Properties.
  3. Select Local Files.
  4. Click on Browse.
  5. Search for launcher.exe and open it.
  6. Click on launcher settings in top right corner of the launcher.
  7. Unmark checkbox Auto Updates.
  8. Restart Steam client.
  9. Wait for Steam to update War Thunder.

Are you sure you renamed back original directory?

Yes 100%.
I did exactly as stated in the instructions.
Steam told me that 129 files failed to validate, so it definitely saw the war thunder folder but for whatever reason didn't like it.
