prompt for installation on Linux Mint

prompt for installation on Linux Mint

Dear all
I have dropbox installed on Linux Mint and it works as expected. However, every time I start Linux Mint, dropbox asks me to install it again. As I don't know whether this are updates or just a bug I say yes. But I think there is something buggy.

Can you help me to switch off this behaviour?
Thanks a lot

Hi @nekrub2, thanks for joining the Community!

It could be a specific issue with the way the Linux OS is starting up?

If you're not on a Dropbox Basic plan with more than 3 devices connected, could you try an advanced reinstall of the app using the steps in this link?

Keep me updated with any progress!
