Pending model was removed/ invalidated

Does anyone have any idea why a model might be giving this error?

“Pending model was removed/ invalidated”


My friend says it’s happening like all the time with the model they’re using but it’s not removed from workshop or missing, just essentially unequips and doesn’t always come back when they re-equip it…

Not sure if it’s a steam issue, TU issue or issue with the model itself since I’ve never encountered it personally. Any advice or fixes would be great!

This is the model…

I don’t see anything wrong with the model on Steam’s end. Could it be they lost connection to Steam?
