Steam (Pacman/Yay) no longer launches

Hopefully you guys are having a good day,

Keeping it short and sweet, I try to launch steam and it returns the following error:[3056]: Running Steam on endeavouros rolling 64-bit[3056]: STEAM_RUNTIME is enabled automatically[3128]: Steam runtime environment up-to-date![3056]: Can't find 'steam-runtime-check-requirements', continuing anyway [2022-10-14 15:58:27] Startup - updater built Jun 7 2022 03:18:19 ILocalize::AddFile() failed to load file "public/steambootstrapper_english.txt". Installing breakpad exception handler for appid(steam)/version(1665100899) SteamUpdateUI: An X Error occurred X Error of failed request: BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)

I have attempted the following fixes, most of them stemming from these two forum posts on the arch wiki and endeavour respectfully:

Simply uninstalling then installing steam via these sets of commands:

sudo pacman -Syy sudo pacman --remove steam sudo pacman -S steam

Resetting steam-runtime:

 steam-runtime --reset 

Running on the lts kernel (5.15) instead of the normal kernel (6.0)

Checking to see if my NVIDIA drivers were out of date, and then reinstalling them.

Any help is appreciated, and I am not in a rush for a response. Have a good weekend.

(PS, I haven’t posted on a forum for years, so apologies if my bbcode looks awful and I can’t edit my post)

Edit 1: Forgot to mention, here are the results for checking the lib32 drivers:

pacman -Ss lib32-nvidia-utils multilib/lib32-nvidia-utils 515.76-1 [installed] NVIDIA drivers utilities (32-bit)

Edit 2: Was asked to provide the logs, they are linked down below


Once I figure out how to post the rest of the logs neatly, I will make another edit.

Edit 3: Figured out how to post logs without it becoming unruly.

pacman.conf -
Xorg.0.log -
pacman.log -

Also was able to find another post with similar issues. The pattern seems to be either a partial upgrade of a driver or something out of sync.

Edit 4: Forgot to mention, this start after I completed a kernel upgrade a couple of hours prior to posting to the forums.

Hopefully this helps. Thank you for reading.

Solved. Another update came out 4 hours later and a reboot fixed it. While I was trying to troubleshoot it though, I accidentally deleted a lot of 32 libs, if you are in this situtation, this is what worked for me:

yay steam-native-runtime

Install it. (Make sure you have ‘steam’ installed as well)
Then reset the runtime:

steam-runtime --reset

After that, it works for me, good luck.
