SteamCMD game install / update issues

While trying to install an ARK: Survival Evolved dedicated server on Centos 7, I ran into a problem with the installer looping on this line:

centos 7 ILocalize::AddFile() failed to load file “public/steambootstrapper_english.txt”.

If you run into this issue, try this. It worked for me:

  1. log in as your game server account and cd to your installation directory. Then –
  2. cd ~/steamcmd
  3. rm -r ./linux32/
  4. mv ./package/tmp/* ~/steamcmd/
  5. ./steamcmd.sh +login anonymous +quit
  6. cd back to your installation directory
  7. execute the install / upgrade again.

Good Luck!
