dropbox staus command error: can't access dropbox folder

Level 3

Dropbox is not syncing after I reinstalled Ubuntu 18.10 on my computer.  I'm not sure I logged in as the same user I used previously.

Re: dropbox staus command error: can't access dropbox folder

Hi there, is your device linked to your account according to the site?
If not, in each of these places, we want to find the email address used to connect to Dropbox. Please also look carefully for typos in your email address in any of these places.
1. On your computer, click on the small Dropbox icon in your menu bar or system tray. Click on the gear in the Notifications panel. Click on Preferences, then click on Account.
2. On iOS, open your Dropbox app and tap on "Account". On Android, open your Dropbox app, tap on the Menu button, and then tap on "Settings".
3. On the Dropbox website, click on your avatar or the face in the top right corner.
Additionally, is the Dropbox folder located on an external drive, or another drive on your device?
Any info you can provide would be great!
