Error could not connect to steam network while updating
Thus, changing the download region may solve the problem in question.You can always try changing the Download Regions many times (it’s not only limited to one try) before proceeding with the further solutions.It even gives you control which websites can access your data which can’t.It is advised to disable these add-ons from Chrome before proceeding the download.
The Steam content system is divided into different regions.
The client automatically detects your region through your network and sets it as default.
Sometimes, servers in a specific region may be overloaded or may be going through a hardware failure.
If the problem was being caused by them, it would be solved.
This doesn’t only include the Chrome extensions, you should disable ANY program which is related to your network (data monitor, VPN’s etc.) It is better to try rather than proceed with the further solutions which are more complex.
