Ubuntu: Where can I download the latest version of Dropbox?



Question:

I went to www.dropbox.com/downloading to download and install the latest 64-bit Ubuntu .deb file (dropbox_2015.10.28_amd64.deb ) that is provided on the page. I installed it using the command:

orschiro@x230:~$ sudo dpkg -i dropbox_2015.10.28_amd64.deb   

After launching Dropbox and providing my account credentials, I am then presented with the following screen. Where am I supposed to get the latest version of Dropbox from if not on their official website?

Solution:1

Dropbox was previously installed on your system and in order to get the latest version you have to open your home folder with a file manager of your choice, make it show hidden files, stop the running instance of Dropbox and delete the contents of the folder .dropbox-dist.

The next time you run Dropbox you'll be asked to download the proprietary daemon and will receive the latest version of the program. From then on Dropbox should keep updating on its own.


Solution:2

First remove everything related to Dropbox from an earlier installation.
Choose another installation method - just perform it the following way.

Open a terminal and execute this command : sudo apt install gdebi
Right-click the downloaded file and select to open the file with gdebi.

Once the installation is finished open Dropbox from the dash.
Click on OK to start the download of the proprietary daemon.

Once it's finished, a new website opens in your browser ->

Sign in to connect the computer to your Dropbox account.
