See https://www.dropbox.com/help/security/official-domains if concerned about domain change.

Dropbox uses a new URL scheme for the latest version (23.4.19):

$ curl --head "https://www.dropbox.com/download?plat=lnx.x86_64" | grep 'Location:'
% Total % Received % Xferd Average Speed Time Time Time Current
Dload Upload Total Spent Left Speed
0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 --:--:-- --:--:-- --:--:-- 0
Location: https://clientupdates.dropboxstatic.com/dbx-releng/client/dropbox-lnx.x86_64-23.4.19.tar.gz

Could you change it? As mentioned below, dropboxusercontent is not so trustyworthy.

My Dropbox is 21.4.25., out of date. I have a file called dropbox-update-22.4.24.tar.gz in .dropbox.cache . How can I make Dropbox update?

Notes: I have dropbox-cli and I always run Dropbox in Firejail like firejail dropbox.

My "dynamic mod" still works with 19.4.13... Not so bad after all ;)

@zjagannatha thanks. Added!

@figue can you post the full PKGBUILD?
Thanks

@figue: that's awesome! works like a charm for me.
One minor note, you should add this:

makedepends=("wget")

figue commented on 2017-02-04 16:55

Hi @mtorromeo maybe you can change PKGBUILD to something like this:

1. Get latest version checking dropbox's official url.
2. Add a pkgver() function to change package version in build time.
3. Done. The bad thing is checksums need to be skipped.

Here you can see a diff with my proposal:

Cheers

Edit: I forgot to add wget as a makedepend...
