I want to note that in order for “sudo apt install nautilus-dropbox” to work on a fresh installation of Ubuntu 18.04.1 you must first enable “Canonical Partners” (not source code) under the “Other Software” tab in Software & Updates and allow it to update sources or do a “sudo apt update”.

I have a working Dropbox program, but its icon is not displayed in the menu bar.
Do you know how to fix it?
I could not install Ubuntu 18.04 from a USB Live drive, so I upgraded from 16.04.
Thank you.

I’ve done update like you, and additionaly changed gnome to budgie and had similar issue what helped me out is something like this

sudo apt remove dropbox
killall dropbox
sudo apt install nautilus-dropbox
and run dropbox from menu

hope that helps you too
