I think this was fixed in an update (unless it's broken again)

Run a full system update by running these 3 commands in sequence:
Code: [Select]
sudo apt update
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt upgrade
then
Code: [Select]
sudo apt dist-upgrade
Now REBOOT.

Once rebooted, try running dropbox again from the menu.

try again

If someone else had problems, it's a one off .. I (and millions of others) update all the time without issue.
