Steam Crashes upon booting

Hello, I was having no issues with steam for months now, until steam decided to hit the deck and now i cant get past the “updating steam” loading box when i try to open it, so I input ‘steam’ in the terminal and got this.[1263]: Running Steam on manjarolinux 22.0.0 64-bit[1263]: STEAM_RUNTIME is enabled automatically[1337]: Steam runtime environment up-to-date![1263]: Steam client's requirements are satisfied

If anyone can help me i would love that because this is the only bit of entertainment i have in my house.

You could always go nuclear, close Steam, and from terminal type

steam --reset

Wait for everything to finish.
You’ll have to login again.
Maybe other stuff will be reset, like libraries location, things like that I’m not sure.
