Maybe the server didn't get the marksmen update and you did?

check these :

update public server repo in play with six (fully close in task manager-then re-open if not)
check to see if arma 3 updated in steam or is downloading new markman dlc

if not then maybe check the forums under "public server" then "technical difficulties and solutions" maybe someone had the same problem and found a fix or follow our public repo install guide word for word and you should have NO problems.

note : i have all the current updates and i can play fine

i think you have either updated something you shouldnt have or haven't updated at all
or possibly something simple like : when you open pw6 top left corner is a pic of arma 3 and not arma 2 yea ? lol ...

hope this helps.

Ok this will be due to not having the current version of arma 3 , make sure your not on any betas for Arma 3. Also close steam completely down and open it back up again , as I encountered this issue with the server and that fixed it.

The issue is with your game not being on the correct build.

Are you using the development build? Not sure if that would do anything, but it might be worth checking.

Try resetting the arma 3 directory, you do this by right clicking on arma 3 in PWS and the on game directory reset it to the game folder. But as I say again the issue lies with the game not updating this could possibly be an issue with steams services and you will have to contact them.
