The path doesn't exist, not in my home directory at least but I can see it on the system root i.e. /Applications/....

To access the folder with applications in the root directory, just remove the tilde at the beginning of the command.
Those. just execute the command in the Terminal:
chmod 0000 /Applications/Dropbox.app/Contents/Resources/*.tgz
But you need only one DropboxHelperInstaller.tgz file, this will be enough:
chmod 0000 /Applications/Dropbox.app/Contents/Resources/DropboxHelperInstaller.tgz
