I finally managed to get rclone working on my VPS via Snap (had to install with --devmode due to Snap's security protocols) and configured to access my Dropbox account but when I run the command:
rclone ls remote:
I get this error:
Failed to ls: couldn't list: v1_retired
Rclone version 1.36
OS: Ubuntu 18 (remote VPS, headerless)
Command: rclone ls remote:
2019/10/29 12:06:10 DEBUG : rclone: Version "v1.36" starting with parameters ["/snap/rclone/466/bin/rclone" "-vv" "ls" "remote:"]
2019/10/29 12:06:10 INFO : Dropbox root '': Modify window not supported

1.36 is many, many years old.
Please download the latest version.
1.36 doesn't support the v2 protocol at dropbox. You'll have to upgrade - I suggest the latest release.
If you want to set up remotely check out: https://rclone.org/remote_setup/ for methods on how to do it.
But 1.36 is the only one that seems to be packaged as a Snap install?
Also I did try installing the latest version via the install script (1.5?) but the config script fails because I'm running on a headerless VPS and it hangs waiting for a browser response (Dropbox authorization) because there's no browser. The URL response part works OK in 1.36 because it is a URL you can copy and paste into any browser (different computer) whereas the 1.5 URL uses localhost (127.0.0.1) which won't work because the host computer has no GUI/browser.
You might find this helpful with 1.50
Got it working now. Not sure what was happening before but I did try the remote authorization on my Mac and it kept failing. This time it worked!
