I’ve been using lutris for quite a long time now and today this error randomly popped up (screenshot). There is no reason for it to do that at all. I have no idea of what an lzma file even is!
I didn’t do anything to the lutris/wine files and now when I start lutris this error pops up every time.

If I press ok lutris starts up but has no runner icons + can’t run wine games with the same error (couldn’t install epic games runner either). I tried re-installing wine/winetricks/lutris and deleting ~/.conf/lutris and ~/.local/share/lutris and then reinstalling lutris, but nothing helped.
Wine itself runs games just fine, so I suppose it’s lutris ruining the fun.
I am using latest EndeavourOS with i3wm if that helps.
Will appreciate any help/suggestions/workarounds
SOLUTION: Huge thanks to @Grogan we now know that this is a faulty archive
dxvk-nvapi-v0.6.2.tar.xz that can’t be downloaded/extracted for some reason. It will probably be patched, but for now you need to download and extract the archive manually. To do this, run these in order:
tar xf dxvk-nvapi-v0.6.2.tar.xz
mv dxvk-nvapi-v0.6.2 ~/.local/share/lutris/runtime/dxvk-nvapi/v0.6.2
It seems that the archive is downloaded to
~/.local/share/lutris/runtime/dxvk-nvapi, but not extracted for some reason, so if you want you can just unpack it into a v0.6.2 folder (if you know what u’r doing).
On some distros, folders may vary: on SteamDeck and PopOS you must extract the archive to
