Hey guys, I spent an hour struggling with this error before I figured it out, but I thought I'd report it to help out.

On the server setup guide (http://www.svencoop.com/manual/server-basic.html) it says


Open a command prompt or terminal environment on your system.
Download and install SteamCMD (https://developer.valvesoftware.com/wiki/SteamCMD) http://www.svencoop.com/manual/images/link-external.png.
Download our dedicated server package with the following command:
steamcmd -login anonymous +force_install_dir "C:\SvenDS" +app_update 276060 validate +exit
Replace the path C:\SvenDS with a location to your preference.
Wait for the package to download and validate.


If you do this, you will get the error:

ERROR! Failed to request AppInfo update, not online or not logged in to Steam.

-------------------------------

The solution is painfully simple. Change "-login" to "+login" and your server will install successfully.

Looked it up and indeed it was -login in HLDS, and +login in SteamCMD
