Help updating steam
What follows is a general set of practices to consider when making an update, along with some best practices that we at Valve have learned from the major updates we've made with our own products and by learning from the many other products that are available via Steam.
Whether your product is a free to play service or a single player narrative, updates can grow your user base and deepen engagement.
For general information about communicating with customers, see our Moderation Best Practices documentation and watch Robin Walker’s full presentation from Steam Dev Days.
Before you begin, you must first install the dependencies required to run Steam CMD: Ubuntu/Debian 64-Bit Next enter your password. (Note: use forward slashes for Linux/OS X and backslashes for Windows.) It is recommended you use this command only on initial installation and if there are server issues.You probably want to be patching all the time to fix issues that players have brought up or that you’ve found while testing the game.But you also want to be thinking about longer-term content updates that keep your players engaged and coming back to play.This happens with both the regular version and the beta.You may have to try multiple times until all the required files are downloaded, but once this is done, the files should update correctly next time.
