I tried to find a way to update my dropbox installation but none of the solutions I found on Internet work.

My system is Xubuntu 12.04 and has dropbox 1.4.0 installed.

The .deb file on the Dropbox web site is the same version.

    If the .deb file on official dropbox site is same as installed then where did you got the idea of newer version not yet released. try sudo dropbox update and post if it works out.In my Dropbox preferences > Account it shows version 1.4.3.

  • I don't know why but download remains "forever" in 99%.

    There seems to be a bug but also a workaround for that here

As you have latest version of Dropbox, and a newer version is not released yet, you don't have to do anything right now. After the release of a newer version, just try to manually download the .deb of Dropbox and install it with the Ubuntu Software Center or use:

sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade
