Need help with: "Fatal error: Steam needs at least 250MB of free disk space to update"

Tue Jul 03, 2018 12:57 am

Hello guys,
As the title suggests, I have an issue with launching steam.
Every time I try and launch it I get the same Fatal error: "Steam needs at least 250MB of free disk space to update" and it is frustrating to say nonetheless.

I have tried reinstalling the nvidia drivers, but to no avail because everything is perfectly up to date.

This is how it looks:

Thank you!

Well the message is pretty obvious. Just make sure there is enough free disk space for steam.

Also, I forgot to tell you that I have more than 250GB free space on my root folder!

What about your home folder where steam is trying to update to?
