I can't download shared folder with curl

I can't download shared folder with curl

alpi
Explorer | Level 3

For some reason, downloading folder from shared link is working not as expected.

What i do:

- Creating folder "_test"

- Making public link

- trying to save:

curl https://www.dropbox.com/sh/gm775ysbj2hy53s/AADUFPm6S4QtTztv52traWTka?dl=1 -o test.zip -J -L -k

unsuccessfull, getting some script content instead of zip with files.

- Sharing this folder through interface link

Spoiler

- after changing some folder settings SOMETIMES link appears to work properly and i can download folder in ZIP, but for now it looks like some **bleep** magic and i can't understand what i should do to make it happens all time.

I'm getting the exact same experience with a curl call that has been working for over a year until seeminly this past Saturday night (EST). Even with redirects on it returns this same webpage.
