I can no longer open steam after recent update

~ ❯❯❯ steam
rm: cannot remove ‘/home/allegro/.steam/root’: Is a directory
steam.sh[86648]: Running Steam on endeavouros rolling 64-bit
steam.sh[86648]: STEAM_RUNTIME is enabled automatically
setup.sh[86721]: Steam runtime environment up-to-date!
steam.sh[86648]: Steam client’s requirements are satisfied

i can’t downgrade as i don’t have older versions and ignoring libgudev in the conf settings didn’t fix it.

It did this to me earlier, I was able to fix it by a simple reboot, maybe this will work for you if you haven’t already tried. Otherwise there are a quite a few posts on the forum about steam not working for different people, maybe one of those threads will point you in the right direction.
