Whenever i try to start valheim, it will download the game. Then it tries to update it and fails saying i have no internet connection, which isnt true since it just downloaded the game files. gives the following error…

Appears that the configuration is trying to get the manifest from
which gives an error.

Looking around, i found that the url
will correctly download. is there anyway to change the url its trying to download to the working url?

Reproduction Steps

  • Create Valheim Instance
  • Start Instance
  • Instance Downloads Game Files
  • Instance complains about no internet connect when trying to update

This is all handled by SteamCMD, not AMP. Try again, they probably had a temporary outage.

Figured out my issue. Zen Armor on my firewall deemed the action a threat. Just had to setup an exception and things are working fine.
