Unable to install a game from epic games store (Flathub version on SteamDeck)

Hi, I’m using a Steam Deck and when I try to install a game from epic games store using Lutris this error shows up:

I’m able to install a game using heroic and then adding locally installed game to play it through Lutris no problem, but for some reason I can’t install a game directly from Lutris.

I’m a noob in linux so any help is appreciated. Thanks

im on arch linux and having this same issue. Can’t install Epic Games Store now, I think it’s an issue on there end but most people use the Heroic Games Launcher, which is also available as a flatpak on the steam deck. The only reason I want to use the lutris version is because Heroic doesn’t directly support EAC games like fall guys

i think playing game on linux is just hoax. i dont think you cannot, i think who ever just needs a laugh at people that are trying to install games!!
