    Open a terminal ctrl+alt+t and enter steam so you get an output of what is wrong then edit your question to include whats the error messages. Please dont post a screenshot, simply copy and paste it.

To install steam open the terminal and type:

sudo apt install steam

Then the launcher should be available in the HUD
