After upgrading Steam and restarting it fails to launch
When launching in console this messages appears many times:

[2013-02-23 20:54:02] Opted in to client beta 'publicbeta' via beta file
...
After appears segfault:

I'm also seeing this.

In addition, I'm also getting a terminal pop up asking to install steam-launcher.

Steam needs to install these additional packages:
steam-launcher

Same here on Debian. Getting console window with:

Steam needs to install these additional packages: 
    steam-launcher

Additionally, the mentioned package IS NOT part of official repository (not even saying that update for steam package hasn't been released).

I'm experiencing the same error as Toby-Haynes above.

Is there a repo I am missing that I need to add to grab this package?

Where does steam-launcher come from?

Good question. Hope that person will be penalized. :)

I haven't seen any so serious problems like this on Windows. Maybe Valve is doing it wrong. :)

As the OP's problem is different from the one we are experiencing, I created issue #1978 for the "missing package" problem.

srikad8 commented Feb 23, 2013

I was able to get steam running by deleting ~/.steam and everything in ~/.local/share/steam except for the steam apps folder then reinstalling steam from the deb file.In the about menu, it says the version im running now was built on Feb 15th and there are no new updates.
edit: I realized this works because I'm no longer opted into the steam client beta. I'm guessing the beta still has this problem.

@melonstorm: It's probably the same issue; OP's just on an RPM os, not a .deb OS. It generates different errors.

Simple solution if you need steam to work right now:

  1. Install .28 version of steam
  2. Rename Steam into Steam.old and create Steam folder
  3. Launch steam
  4. Symlink SteamApps folder from Steam.old to Steam
    When update came just delete Steam and rename Steam.old back and let steam will apply it.

Well i had the same errors, i just clicked close on the terminal windows since it wouldn't install and after 2 attempts to then loaded Steam fine.

The terminal loads up each time i load steam now asking for steam-launcher but steam still runs if i close the terminal, so hopefully that will be sorted by an update soon.

I can confirm @srikad8 it works for me now too. I am guessing a propagation issue with the package not being 100% up yet.

If you're still seeing this, try running this command to reset your installation and opt out of the beta:
