I can't update my Mac OS because of Dropbox?

I can't update my Mac OS because of Dropbox?

Cannot install Apple-update 2020-002 10.13.6 on my iMac/ macOS High Sierra. 

The Mac dialogbox telles me, this is because of Dropbox on my Mac.

Please tell me, how to change my Dropbox Preferences in order to install the Mac update.

Following your link I come to my Personal account, when clicking on my Profile picture, but I cannot see: Pause syncing or Resume syncing!

I can see  Smart Sync update for Mac as an option under Preferences. Can I use that one?
