That tells me you haven't done Install Updates first. You need to do that first. You're going to have to remove any trace of Dropbox as well. Then install it via Lite Software.

Before I saw your message tonight I had just done an update via the terminal.  I did it again and then all the other things I said, but I'm going for it again.  This time with the gui update.  Standby.

Got it.  This time I used the Install Updates tool.  Checked for the .dropbox folder.  It wasn't there.  Went to Synaptic and removed the Nautilus-Dropbox package.  Rebooted.  Installed Dropbox via Lite Software.  Opened Dropbox.  Got this popup:  http://imgur.com/84tQqKm, and from there was prompted for login credentials.

Thanks.

Do you get any Dropbox context help menu choices as seen in the image here?  http://imgur.com/XjOlcvf, which was taken from https://www.dropbox.com/help/19

No, that's for the nautilus file manager. we use Thunar file manager. You could try the instructions at the bottom of this article - http://www.webupd8.org/2012/08/how-to-install-dropbox-in-xubuntu-and.html after 'Update (July 3, 2014)' though I have no idea if it works still.
