Making progress here. I had Dropbox syncing. I checked an hour later and the problem came back.

The command "sudo tee -a /etc/sysctl.conf" is not doing anything.

echo fs.inotify.max_user_watches=100000

sudo tee -a /etc/sysctl.conf

sudo sysctl -p

dropbox stop

dropbox start

then dropbox status

Dropbox isn't responding.
