When using sudo apt-get update in order to install grive-tools to elementary, I get this:

W: The repository 'http://ppa.launchpad.net/thefanclub/grive-tools/ubuntu xenial Release' does not have a Release file.
N: Data from such a repository can't be authenticated and is therefore potentially dangerous to use.
N: See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.
E: Failed to fetch http://ppa.launchpad.net/thefanclub/grive-tools/ubuntu/dists/xenial/main/binary-amd64/Packages  404  Not Found
E: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

Am I being stupid? I got it to work perfectly with Freya.

Freya is based on Ubuntu 14.04 and loki on 16.04.

It looks like there is no version of Grive-Tools for 16.04 based distributions.

Maybe you can take a look at Insync or overgrive instead.
