Not a bug. Looks like Steam burped. Just wait a little bit and try again. Go get a burger or make a candy run to the gas station or something. Odds are it will be back up by the time you get home, if it isn’t already.

same exact thing for me tonight out of the blue, everything was fine , logged for 2 hrs now this.

It is Steam’s maintenance day. It should be back to normal once completed. It may help restarting steam.
