I get an error that this app can't share right now. Why?

Laptop, Windows 10, using file explorer.

Can see dropbox folders and files.

Usually to share a folder I right click on the folder and the options include Share.

At the moment the share option is not available.

When I right click a file rather than a folder the Share option is visible but when I select that option I get the following error message

'this app can't share right now '

Is the Dropbox client running? What is its status if you hover your cursor over the Dropbox icon?
