Quoting: omicron-bDo you wish to try Flatpak version of Steam?
Yes I think I can give it a try. Even just for having a full report with all the possible scenarios.
I will keep you posted here with the outcome.

Hello, I am on Debian Testing (Bullseye) and I have the exact same problem. It's now weeks that I have this issue and so far no solution, and it's look like it is really Debian specific.

I am trying to investigate myself the problem but so far no idea what is going on? One thing is sure, the game was working before, I played with it for some weeks and then one day I got this issue.

I managed however to get an idea when this problem appeared. My last saved games in Jedi Fallen Order is dated June the 6th, and I realized the game was not working anymore almost only a week after, the 14th. Here https://paste.debian.net/hidden/4a2567fd/ I saved a list of packages that got updated in Debian Testing during those days, I removed possibly non related stuffs from the list like games and office applications. Given that the problem might be network/certification related my current suspects are the ca-certificates and the gnutls packages. Doing a version cross check of these packages on other distros might help?

I understand. Few other people confirmed that this issue is quite recent.

Yes I have already checked gnutls and I haven't spot any apparent change, but I'll take a better look at it for sure.

Thank you for the hint. I'll keep you all posted if I find anything.

And it works successfully with Flatpak indeed. Could this be a lead for making some comparisons?

(Sorry for the second account, got issues with the previous one)

As posted also here https://www.reddit.com/r/SteamPlay/comments/hmjrm6/unable_to_connect_to_ea_servers_for_origin_games/ the list of packages that got updated between 6-14 June on my Debian Testing are here https://paste.debian.net/hidden/f20373e7/

I thought ca-certificates and gnutls packages might be the problem, those also got updated on Debian Stable during the same periods. I downgraded these packages:

  • libneon27-gnutls:amd64, 0.31.1-1 --> 0.30.2-4

  • gnutls-bin:amd64, 3.6.14-1 --> 3.6.13-4

  • libgnutls30:amd64, 3.6.14-1--> 3.6.13-4

  • libgnutls30:i386, 3.6.14-1 --> 3.6.13-4

  • libgnutls-dane0:amd64, 3.6.14-1 --> 3.6.13-4)

  • ca-certificates, 20200601 --> 20190110


restarted my pc and tried again but the problem is still there. So it must be something else!

Few installation errors are common and have a workaround. Have you already checked the Wine AppDB Page for Origin?

Origin sucks on LInux, why I even try? the download got to 50% and complained about missing Virtual Basic Libraries and started all over again from zero.

The_Aquabat 23 Jul

So I got to the point where the game runs, but origin has only downloaded 50% of the files, so when I advance in the game I wouldn't be able to progress. I restarted the origin client and it starts verifying games files then, when it's about to start downloading the remmaining it says on the system tray at the corner "A download error has occured".

so I still couldn't figure out the origin not downloading error. But here is my take on this, with Mesa 20.2git performance is getting there, I think that I should wait some months, for final optimizations since mine is a weak card for this game, on more powerful hardware like a navi 5700xt/5600xt, nvidia 1080, the game should play excelent when mesa 20.2 is releasead.
