I was getting this, too. Joining the Steam Client Beta fixed it.

Make sure both the bootstrapper (steam you installed from the repo) and the client are up to date, these files should exist for you.
@sulix how did you become opted out of the beta client?

I had opted out manually while attempting to fix something else. Everything's working now, though.

Had the same problem and can confirm that upgrading steam worked. If you installed the package locally manually, e.g. through dpkg --install, you have to install the new version again: http://media.steampowered.com/client/installer/steam.deb

I had the latest version of steam launcher and client (updated both today) and was in the beta, according to the Settings dialog. I encountered this problem trying to launch Half-Life.

Symlinking ~/.steam/sdk32/ to ~/.steam/bin32/ has worked around the issue and the game now launches.
