Uninstall and reinstall the Dropbox app. You may need to restart the iPad in between if the reinstall doesn't solve it the first time.

Just make sure your iPad will support the latest Dropbox app before you uninstall it. Older devices may not be able to reinstall the app if your iOS version isn't supported. Dropbox now requires iOS 11 or later.
