I was also facing this problem and few minutes ago I came into a solution. So here it is:
You need to edit your Dropbox.repo file.
Type this in your terminal:sudo gedit /etc/yum.repos.d/dropbox.repo
and that's it.
@XxBatfaIla7 Thanks for adding that but it has been suggested already.
While this will eliminate the error messages it will conceal any future updates that Dropbox makes in the future because it will "hardwire" the updates to ONLY look at the version for Fedora v31.
If you use this, make certain to occasionally check the Fedora Dropbox repo at http://linux.dropbox.com/fedora for newer versions.
After installing Dropbox on Fedora 32 and running the following command:
I get this error:
Dropbox Repository 20 kB/s | 25 kB 00:01 Errors during downloading metadata for repository 'Dropbox': - Status code: 404 for http://linux.dropbox.com/fedora/32/repodata/repomd.xml (IP: 126.96.36.199) Error: Failed to download metadata for repo 'Dropbox': Cannot download repomd.xml: Cannot download repodata/repomd.xml: All mirrors were tried Ignoring repositories: Dropbox
It seems that replacing "/32/" with "/31/" in the URL gives a valid XML response, so I imagine Dropbox doesn't have an updated repo for Fedora yet.
It seems that finally they updated the repository for Fedora 32. https://linux.dropbox.com/fedora/32/ its working now.
Hi again everyone, I'm glad to hear that this seems to be resolved for you now.
Although I can't put a specific time frame, if you run into any other issues or unexpected behaviors, we're always just a post away.
@Lusilyes, the issue is fixed for Fedora 32 but will it be fixed when Fedora 33 is released? Or will we have to note the error again, and bring it to you attention one more time. Having worked in the software industry, I know this can be automated. Have your release engineers corrected the release process or was this a one time fix?
Thanks for you attention, and thank your developers for a great product.
The Fedora 32 repodata xml file still refers to the 2019.02.12 package version. Will there be an update that points to the newer (2020.03.04) version?
