Downloads okay for me and sha still checks out. Maybe it was a temporary network glitch.

Failed to download python script.

This is the page: https://www.dropbox.com/help/desktop-web/linux-commands#commands

Link works just fine for me: https://www.dropbox.com/download?dl=packages/dropbox.py

Works with this python script / link and updating sha256sudm

I'm getting same error like @jarod and there is no dropbox-cli package in the pacman cache:

@jarod, clear the cache for that package, your aur helper probably doesn't redownload the file, if its name didn't change

If they don't put it back soon, I'll upload it to github, as it's GPL.

@rosslaird, seeing the same thing. Interestingly, all the source links on their page now 404. I'd guess it's a mistake...

rosslaird commented on 2017-06-22 03:58

Currently getting this:

ERROR: Failure while downloading https://linux.dropbox.com/packages/dropbox.py

Loading the above URL directly from the browser yields a 404, so I'm guessing the file has been moved.

@twa022, I'd rather not make functional changes to the script.

Could you change the patch to this (https://pastebin.com/ij2Ddtt3)

so that /usr/local/bin takes precedence over /usr/bin. (Have dropbox script in /usr/local/bin to export QT_STYLE_OVERRIDE to get proper theming)
Thanks!
