I just bought Skyrim on PC and when I try to install it I have to update Steam. When I try, a pop up says "no Steam config online".

What does that mean and how do I fix it?

  • Have you tried updating Steam?

  • It sounds like the Steam servers are overloaded- presumably due to everyone else trying to update Steam. Try it again now- does it work? Mar 7, 2014 at 13:07
  • Another, perhaps easier way, is to uninstall steam (make sure to clean out the /Steam folder) and make a clean install.

This problem is caused by necessary Steam servers being unavailable. You can either download the Steam installer directly and run that or wait for the servers to become available.
