Hi Suzie, can you please post some more details like a screenshot or short video? Also, is this for the Dropbox desktop application or something else?

I searched for the error message but couldn't find much about it. I would suggest restarting your computer to see if that fixes it. Aside from that, you could try pausing and unpausing Dropbox's sync feature to see if that resets it.

Thanks Lusil for your response. I've had Dropbox installed on my iMac, Macbook and iphone for may years - i recently trialed TEAM DROPBOX for a month (Jan 3rd - Feb 4th 2019) but did not continue with the subscription - I believe this is when my problems started. I don't have any problems with Dropox syncing to my phone or Macbook. However, Dropbox seems to have stopped syncing to my iMac. The icon at the top of my computer screen has disappeared - I've downloaded Dropbox Installer again to try and get it back - it appears to download - i get as asked to sign in - i get sent an security code to my phone - then the error message appears -i've clicked "try again" - nothing happens and the error appears again - pressing "cancel" does nothing.

It looks like Dropbox is trying to install (seen screenshot 3) but then it disappears completely. I've repeated this process several times. Suzie Dropbox error 3.jpeg

I still have access to my older Dropbox files on my iMac, but nothing new i create from my Macbook is syncing over. Please help!

Thanks for the detailed reply and for the screenshots, @suzie17! Much appreciated. 
 
Based on the first image you attached, my initial thought was that there’s a third party app using the path mentioned. As such, you could try temporarily quitting/disabling apps to see if you’re able to find the potential app that’s causing this. 
 
If that doesn’t work, you could always try rebooting your computer, as @Pikamander2 also suggests, and relaunch finder. 
 
More information
To do this:
  • Click on the Dropbox icon from your Desktop and quit the app.
  • Open your Activity Monitor from your Mac Utilities folder.
  • Force quit out of the instances of the desktop app that are running by searching for "Dropbox" in the search bar, then clicking on the "x" force quit icon on the top left.
  • Re-start Dropbox from the applications folder by double clicking on the Dropbox app.
  • Click on the Apple icon in the top left of your screen
  • Select "force quit".
  • Relaunch the finder.
Let me know of any updates!

Hi there @jerry11

Sorry to hear that you're also experiencing this behavior. 

Initially, awesome work on the initial troubleshooting! Definitely gives us a better understanding of the potential investigation that we need to carry out. 

The next step I'd recommend taking is to reboot your device. It may help to refresh your settings and resolve this for you. 

Let me know if this helps!

PS. I also removed some info included in your screenshot as per our Community Guidelines for security and privacy purposes.
