You'll need to contact the creators of ES File Explorer Pro. Dropbox can only provide support for the Dropbox app. Any other app used to access Dropbox would only be using the Dropbox API, and it's up to the developers of that app to support it.

How did dropbox change so that now es file explorer can't access it anymore? And why did dropbox do that?

In June of 2016, Dropbox notified third-party developers that the Dropbox API v1 was being deprecated and any applications that still used it would need to be updated to use API v2. Those applications that didn't update would eventually be unable to connect to Dropbox. Fast-forward 15 months to September 2017, and Dropbox has finally shutdown API v1. ES File Explorer/Manager PRO was apparently never updated to use API v2, so it is now unable to connect.

 

Only the developers of ES File Explorer/Manager PRO can correct this, and they can only do it by updating their application to use the newer API.
