I'm trying to run Steam on my Ubuntu 18.04 after upgrading from 16.04 (it was running flawlessly there). The issue is, that it's not opening. When I try to execute command steam in the terminal, it returns this message:

Running Steam on ubuntu 18.04 64-bit
STEAM_RUNTIME is enabled automatically
Installing breakpad exception handler for appid(steam)/version(0)
libGL error: unable to load driver: i965_dri.so
libGL error: driver pointer missing
libGL error: failed to load driver: i965
libGL error: unable to load driver: i965_dri.so
libGL error: driver pointer missing
libGL error: failed to load driver: i965
libGL error: unable to load driver: swrast_dri.so
libGL error: failed to load driver: swrast

The only thing I understand from it is that a driver can't load properly, but I don't know what to do with that.

These commands should fix it, thanks to The Intelligent Human,(Steam doesn't start. LibGL error) and kisak-valve (https://github.com/ValveSoftware/steam-for-linux/issues/5249)

rm ~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/i386/usr/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libstdc++.so.6
rm ~/.local/share/Steam/ubuntu12_32/steam-runtime/i386/lib/i386-linux-gnu/libgcc_s.so.1
LD_PRELOAD='/usr/$LIB/libstdc++.so.6' LIBGL_DRI3_DISABLE=1 steam

Finally, run the command steam and it should launch and begin updating.
