Garrys Mod isn't downloading anything

Whenever I join a server, Gmod proceeds to say it’s downloading said files, but it doesn’t actually download them. It just skips over everything.

I made sure I had my options set to download everything when joining a server.

Are there any console commands I should look at? Help would be appreciated.


The lates ver of gmod only work currently when steam is in english.

My Steam is in English, and always has been.

I even tried changing it to a different language and then changing back to English. No luck.
