I'm having trouble setting multi lookup field. I found this example:
Update a LookupMulti Column value in SharePoint using Client Object Model C# and Setting a SharePoint Multi-value Lookup Field value using PowerShell and CSOM

And also this: Add values to lookupmulti field in c#, but its not using CSOM.

The code I have is this:

                ListItemCreationInformation itemCreateInfo = new ListItemCreationInformation();
                SP.ListItem oListItem = oList.AddItem(itemCreateInfo);

                FieldLookupValue[] arr = new FieldLookupValue[1];
                FieldLookupValue lvItem = new FieldLookupValue();
                lvItem.LookupId = 7;
                arr[0] = lvItem;

                oListItem["prjIBusers"] = arr;

                oListItem.Update();

                context.ExecuteQuery();

But it throws the following error at ExecuteQuery()

  Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ServerException
  HResult=0x80131500
  Message=Unknown Error
  Source=Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.Runtime
  StackTrace:

   at Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ClientContext.ExecuteQuery()

Try this code:

var lookupValues = new ArrayList();            
var lookupValue = new FieldLookupValue { LookupId = 7 };
lookupValues.Add(lookupValue);
//var lookupValue1 = new FieldLookupValue { LookupId = 5 };
//lookupValues.Add(lookupValue1);
oListItem["prjIBusers"] = lookupValues.ToArray();
oListItem.Update();
context.ExecuteQuery();

OR:

Don't build an array of SP.FieldLookupValue, instead save multiple lookup values to string as mentioned here:
