Actually the problem is not the same as in the cited thread (for this reason I have moved your post to a new thread). Here the error is 404 that means "File not found". Indeed, it appears the dropbox repository is not there anymore, even if this page in their FAQ mentions three available repos (ubuntu, debian and fedora). You may try to contact the dropbox people on their forum to ask for clarification.

In alternative you might try to install dropbox from one of the packages available here or from the provided source code.

Please post your thread in only one forum. Posting a single thread in the most relevant forum will make it easier for members to help you and will keep the discussion in one place. This thread is being closed because it is a duplicate of http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...-8/yum-912996/.

I've just realized you already started a new thread.
