No syncing of native steam games. Solution Found!

When opening the “Import games”, and selecting Steam, the circle in the middle start spinning, but nothing happens. I waited around 15 minutes with no avail. Wine Steam works fine, GOG and Linux games too.
Here’s what appears when I open Lutris trough the terminal:

2019-07-04 23:27:13,778: Error while completing task <function LutrisWindow.sync_services..full_sync at 0x7fc2b00afbf8>: [Errno 5] Input/output error

Edit 06/07/19: I secure erased the SSD, wiped the whole thing and installed Manjaro. The problem Remains. I was on Kubuntu previously. This is my current log:

Edit Again: The problem was an appmanifest file of a Steam game that was installed on a second hard drive, got corrupted. Causing the error here shown. By simply removing that file (and the game) Lutris began to work again as it should.
