HTTP error 401 when trying to download from depot

Recommended Posts

I use node-steam-user and node-csgo-cdn. I had the same Issue as described in this post. Fixed it with this pull request.
My application worked perfectly fine until this morning. When "node-csgo-cdn" trys to download the latest files from the depot,
it throws following error.


            triggerUncaughtException(err, true /* fromPromise */);
OperationalError: HTTP error 401
    at ClientRequest.<anonymous> (node_modules\steam-user\components\cdn.js:572:13)
    ... 9 lines matching cause stack trace ...

      at TCP.onStreamRead (node:internal/stream_base_commons:190:23),
  isOperational: true

When trying to call the url manually, for example http://cache4-fra1.steamcontent.com/depot/731/manifest/2494342422876109608/5 I get a 401 error. 

Did steam change something related to CDN, depots?
