October 30, 2014 8.2k views

I follow this steps https://www.dropbox.com/install?os=lnx to install dropbox on one of my droplets and it works perfect.

But now I am able to install on other droplet following the same steps. It retrieve this error:

--2014-10-30 08:59:14-- https://www.dropbox.com/download?plat=lnx.x86_64
Resolving www.dropbox.com (www.dropbox.com)... failed: Name or service not known.
wget: unable to resolve host address ‘www.dropbox.com’

Can somebady help me fixing this?

Thanks in advance
