Hey @mhanbildiren, welcome to our community! 

Are you developing an application here? The reason I ask is because I don’t know how to answer your question, and I want to get it to the right person for help! 

Let me know, and I’ll see what I can do  
Thanks

@mhanbildiren, try changing the ?dl=0 in your Dropbox links to ?raw=1.

 

@Sanchez, it looks like he's developing his own application and is trying to use Dropbox as the source for updates to the app. He's using a share link that ends in ?dl=0 which results in a web page, not a raw file. I'm wondering if that is what is causing the error message.

Hey mhanbildiren, have you logged a ticket as per Rich’s advice? Could you include a ticket ID we could reference in your next message, so that we look into your request internally and make sure a colleague works on that with as closely as possible? 
 
Thanks in advance & I’m looking forward to hearing back from you!
