Apps and Installations

I've migrated over from my old iMac. Since a previous post has mentioned something about stale permission, I've made sure to follow the advanced reinstallation and ran all commands in the Terminal. Still no joy.
I also checked system logs and there are lots of logd_helper deny file-read-data warnings pointing to shared object files in Dropbox.app itself, so I can only assume there are still permission issues.
Thank you for all the additional info @qc4!
Can you try this permission fix, and let me know if it does the trick?
- Click on the Dropbox icon in your menu bar and then click your profile picture or initials
- Select 'Preferences'
- Click on the 'Account' tab
- Hold down the 'Option/Alt' key
- Click on the 'Fix Permissions' button (make sure you're still holding down the 'Option/Alt' key)
-You may be asked for your username and password; these are your computer login credentials, not those for your Dropbox account.
I am not located in China.
The website is available to me (that's how I've been accessing my files.)
I have reinstalled four times, two of which are through your advanced reinstall help article.
