I have the same problem indicated in this discussion, this time running Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS :
As I seem to understand, the problem was then solved with the update to a beta version.

Hi @giogio83, welcome to the community! That post is rather old, so the same steps probably wouldn't work since the app has changed a lot since then.
Assuming you’re not on a Basic plan with more than 3 devices connected, try a basic reinstall of the app from here.
Let me know how it goes!
Can you try an advanced reinstall please? Steps can be found here.
Let me know if the issue is fixed after taking these steps.
Thank you for your patience.

@stevenpoint that was a lifesaver. My dropbox on MANY ubuntu 18.04 LT's became stuck on upgrading and stopped syncing. The "upgrading" would not stop or go away. I ran your apt-get install libatomic1 and then rebooted. As soon as ubuntu came back from the reboot dropbox finished "upgrading", closed and re-opened, and then began syncing as normal again.
Dropbox Support, I hope you are paying attention and fix this soon!
