It's a known fact that steam trade offers gives an error most of the time. This guide will list the most common errors, as well as ways to fix them.
I'll add in screenshots and more errors as I go along.

this:

almost always never happens, but you get an error, most of time it's errors listed below.

error: it just won't work. Just not your day.
error(8): you are not logged into steam, refresh the page and try again after logging in

after refreshing

error(16)/error(11)-courtesy of angry rock: the trade went through. refresh the page and the offer will no longer be valid

error(28): the trade is not working because of steam inventory issues. Try later.

error(you cannot trade with [so and so]): refresh the page, restart steam or http://steamcommunity.com/groups/tf2bazaar/announcements/detail/1477479091120204234
error(due to steam guard restrictions, you will be unable to trade from this device for 7 days): self explanatory

This is really helpful. You should consider making this a fully fleshed out Steam guide.

omg thanks man, I have been searching the internet the entire day, asking myself why I couldn't trade this particular guy, but I could trade other people. But yes indeed his backpack is completly full so that explains it. Thanks so much!

What does it mean if your backpack is full? I have error 26 as well!

Tf2 backpacks have a limited number of spaces, 300 slots for a default P2P. F2P only get 50. If the amount of items in your bp is close to the limit and someone attempts to trade you items that would push you over it, you can't accept the trade. Either you or the person you are trying to trade has too many items. This can be fixed by crafting, trading, or deleting items. You could also buy a bp expander, which increases the amount you can hold by 100 slots.

Ahhh, good old 28, he pops up a lot when a new major content update goes live. Basically, just means that the item servers are overloaded, just make a trade offer and spam the heck out of the accept button. It'll go through eventually :)

"There was an error sending your trade offer. Please try again later. (26)" I'm not sure what this one means:L

Wait. 500s are internal server errors(I think) and cannot be fixed. They happen when steam is busy/goes down or whatever. You just have to wait it out.

thanks for that. I never knew what the errors actually meant. I am not good with determining errors and computer malfunctions.
