I think a suggested solution to our problem works!
Go to the steam folder, then depotcache, then create a file named depotkeys.vdf, and paste this in it:

"33901" { "DecryptionKey3" "c07cec672c1aa48a1493532ec6a9e04a5f351ce1d1445f8eb98ba8c93ff5fa27" }
"33902" { "DecryptionKey3" "d38d4094b44356928935645d092118615ea6bdd2d833474c272cc64cd5a4853e" }

After you're done, restart Steam.
Doing this made Arma 2 finally finish downloading.

After you do this, it might still be stuck at updating.
I'm not sure if it helps, but you can also verify file cache integrity.
After doing both of these things, it worked.

But after a while (I also verified file integrity again after doing this), it really did finish.
