In WordPress, before updating to version 4.9, I wanted to run UpdraftPlus backup, but received the error below; any ideas what needs to be done? TIA.

Dropbox chunked upload exception (Dropbox_BadRequestException): Error in call to API function "files/upload_session/start": Must provide HTTP header "Authorization" or URL parameter "authorization". (line: 217, file: C:\home\\wwwroot\wp\wp-content\plugins\updraftplus\includes\Dropbox2\OAuth\Consumer\Curl.php)
