There are many reasons for why this could happen:

  • Steam CDN being down (either having problems or just maintenance) 
  • Steam client not recognizing the updated subscribed addons list 
  • Steam failing to write addon’s files (content lock, corrupted download, hdd problems???) 
  • User actually not installing the addons (but we’ll leave this out for now)

If steps above didn’t help, you can try the last resort option:
