I had this problem when updating on a PC with Windows 10. Using the offline installer did not help. Using an earlier version of DropBox, it installed, but then indicated I needed to update to continue. Finally I completely uninstalled the program using CCleaner (great program, BTW). I then cleaned the registry, ran the cleaner, and restarted the computer. At this point I went to dropbox.com, signed in, and hit the "install" link. Everything went smoothly from there and the latest Dropbox is installed and syncing fine. Hope this helps someone.

Tried and failed... I have tried many options that I could find in this forum but nothing seems to work :(
The wierd thing is:
1. Older versions of dropbox can install but then I cannot log in
2. If I switch account on my laptop, I can install Dropbox, it works perfectly well but some how it does not translate into this account....
Any other suggestion will be gratefully received!

Hi @JaneA, Thanks for your reply. I have tried all troubleshooting suggestions that I came across in this forum (not only this thread) and in the support resources. Nothing worked and I kept receiving the Error 2 message. Note: the problem was ONLY related to my work's profile on my laptop. On the same machine, I've got a personal profile and Dropbox installs there with no problem at all. The only thing that worked for me was to take my laptop to my office and connect to the server there. There must be some odd setting that my organisation chose for my laptop which prevents Dropbox to install properly. It must be a Windows issue... as always! I haven't checked if Dropbox still works out of the office but will definitely ask for help if it doesn't. Thanks, Ale
