    With Arch, when a thing doesn’t work it’s usually because I didn’t follow the Wiki to the letter. I suggest you revisit the installation instructions for steam and check for what you have possibly missed. The first thing is to do a full upgrade pacman -Syu before you install steam

i'm not sure it's the right way to do but it worked for me : i installed steam-native-runtime ... in archlinux :

pacman -S steam-native-runtime

i'm not quite sure what it done but it fixed my problems with this command.

i hope it can help someone with the same errors like me.
