I've got a production version of CartoDB running locally, but when I try and create a table based on a spreadsheet hosted on Dropbox I don't get the option to keep the data in sync, instead I get upgrade your account.

What do I need to do to resolve this?

You can enable them in the interface for all the users in your local install by updating the sync_tables_enabled row on the users table:

UPDATE users SET sync_tables_enabled = 1;

However, sync tables also require a script to be ran every 15 minutes, which will enqueue pending synchronizations:

RAILS_ENV=production bundle exec rake cartodb:sync_tables

I've filed two tickets for this to get properly documented:
