Joomla 4.2.8, PHP 8.1.16, BF Version 1.9.1 build 943 (joomla4):
Updated BF, then copied update files re dropbox issues, now trying to export data as pdf via dropbox I get the error:-

Failed to open stream: HTTP wrapper does not support writeable connections in /home/customer/www/ on line 2441

Un checking the pdf option for dropbox export eliminates the problem - but no export of data.

it seems you need to allow PHP in its settings to allow remote connections using fopen. This is nowadays no issue anymore but some webhosting providers keep that option off. If you can turn it on, it should work. If your hosting provider does not allow it, we need to see if that can be solved differently.
