"Game is currently unavailable"

Do a barrel roll.
Also, restarting my computer always work.

Try trying later.

It is happening to me too, but i tried everything, even the hl2.exe proccess. i tried steam support. it still says “this game is currently unavailable”. help?

Same is happening to me. Everything you guys have said to try i have done except for the steam directory because since im new to this shitty steam program i dont know where it is

Way to bump a 3 year old thread

I also keep getting this error as well.

I tried to remove the two .blob files, defrag game files, verify integrity of game files, reinstall Gmod, reinstall Steam, change download server in the options…

None of that managed to fix it.
