remove the dropbox repo or comment out the lines in dropbox repo

login as root

rm -rf /etc/yum.repos.d/dropbox.repo

OR

oprn dropbox repo

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

and comment the lines

#[Dropbox]
#name=Dropbox Repository
#baseurl=http://linux.dropbox.com/fedora/$releasever/
#gpgkey=http://linux.dropbox.com/fedora/rpm-public-key.asc
