  • Cannot download the game

    It's impossible to download games because steam can't create game cache files
    Have tried many things but nothing works

            Did you try to reinstall Steam?
            Need more information. What do you mean by "game cache files"? Do you get any error message?

              I have reinstaled steam more than 7 times now (some times because i reinstalled the OS for other reason)

              The first thing Steam does when trying to install a game is to ''check game cache files''. Sometimes i get an error message saying they were unable to do it. Sometimes nothing happens and it starts downloading the game

              When the download starts it begins with X kbps(always bellow 500, usually +-250) and then the speed strats droping from there to 0.
              After that it can either say it's on the queue or say it's on 0% and if you look at the speed it's 0kbps. This goes on ad infinitum.
              The information is actually downloaded but at that speed and time intervals it's easier for Steam to go bankrupt than the download compleat.

              I just noticed i erased the OS on the edit.
              Linux Mint Rafaela (Cinamon if that makes any difference)
              There were similar bugs happening in 2010-2012 but none of their solution worked for me

                  Some update
                  If i cick the play button it starts the download again and when it fail i get the message:
                  ''An error has occurred while updating Dota 2 (connection time out)''

                  Changed the DL server and it's still the same
