Installing Steam - broken dependencies

I've tried installing via downloading the `.deb` and also via adding the `multiverse`? PPA and now neither works.

Adding the `multiverse` PPA has given me a ton of warnings on `apt-get update` now:

W: Skipping acquire of configured file 'multiverse/binary-amd64/Packages' as repository 'http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu jammy InRelease' doesn't have the component 'multiverse' (component misspelt in sources.list?)
W: Skipping acquire of configured file 'multiverse/binary-i386/Packages' as repository 'http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu jammy InRelease' doesn't have the component 'multiverse' (component misspelt in sources.list?)
W: Skipping acquire of configured file 'multiverse/i18n/Translation-en_US' as repository 'http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu jammy InRelease' doesn't have the component 'multiverse' (component misspelt in sources.list?)
W: Skipping acquire of configured file 'multiverse/i18n/Translation-en' as repository 'http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu jammy InRelease' doesn't have the component 'multiverse' (component misspelt in sources.list?)
W: Skipping acquire of configured file 'multiverse/cnf/Commands-amd64' as repository 'http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu jammy InRelease' doesn't have the component 'multiverse' (component misspelt in sources.list?)


The `.deb` fails to install and the `Package Install` window doesn't support copy/pasting. But if I run `steam` via the terminal I get:
Package libegl1:i386 needs to be installed
Package libgbm1:i386 needs to be installed
Package libgl1-mesa-dri:i386 needs to be installed
Package libgl1:i386 needs to be installed
Package steam-libs-amd64:amd64 needs to be installed
Package steam-libs-i386:i386 needs to be installed
Package xdg-desktop-portal needs to be installed
Package xdg-desktop-portal-gtk needs to be installed



And finally errors with:
steam.sh[9574]: Error: You are missing the following 32-bit libraries, and Steam may not run:
libGL.so.1
libdrm.so.2
libdrm.so.2
libdrm.so.2

EDIT1: I followed the guide at https://techpiezo.com/linux/install-steam-in-ubuntu-22-04/ and installed a ton of stuff via sudo apt install libgl1:i386 and now steam launches but it still complains about missing packages. The missing packages now are:

Package libegl1:i386 needs to be installed
Package libgbm1:i386 needs to be installed
Package steam-libs-amd64:amd64 needs to be installed
Package steam-libs-i386:i386 needs to be installed
Package xdg-desktop-portal needs to be installed
Package xdg-desktop-portal-gtk needs to be installed

stevef:
Did using Lite Software not work ?

m0NbaVx5jBVSh:
I assumed it was broken because it shows nothing under 'remove software' and there's tons of software I wanted to remove on first bootup like LibreOffice and Orca. I'll try to apt-get purge steam and try the Lite Software

EDIT: I tried the Lite Software utility and the install is broken with a similar message to apt-get on the command line:


- Error, pkgProblemResolver::Resolve generated breaks, this may be caused by held packages.
- Make sure your computer is connected to the internet and try again.



I'll probably just reinstall the entire operating system at this point.

Jerry:
Yeah, you're trying to install now with 2 different methods without cleaning up the first method. Seek out Lite Software before installing any common programs, if what you are looking for is not there, then try another source :) This will prevent any breakages.

m0NbaVx5jBVSh:
Well I'm not exactly sure what's going on here but doing a clean install and then updating via apt-get update && apt-get upgrade && apt-get dist-upgrade before finally running the linux lite installer for Steam and I'm still getting the same issue.

Is anyone else able to install Steam out of the box without issue? I'm running a Thinkpad X1 Carbon 3rd Gen so i5-5300u.
