If Dropbox repo is the the only repo you have problem with then you can temporally disable it from the command line with --disablerepo=Dropbox

yum update --disablerepo=Dropbox

or you can permanently disable the repo by adding the line enabled=0 to the repo file at

/etc/yum.repos.d/dropbox.repo

one other option is to change the $releasever variable to fixed value e.g 18.

We have this problem each time when a new Fedora release came out, and Dropbox didn't open a repo for it.

Dropbox doesn't have any repositories for Fedora 19 (yet). So, you should disable its repo or let it point to F18 repo as explained.

I had the same problem with Fedora 20. Hard coding it to 19 fixed the problem.

Had the same problem with FC21. I hard coded to FC20 as a temporary fix.

cat /etc/yum.repos.d/dropbox.repo

baseurl=http://linux.dropbox.com/fedora/$releasever/

baseurl=http://linux.dropbox.com/fedora/20/
