I’ve downloaded 2 WordPress themes. Installation failed on both of them with the following error: “The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.”
Please check this helpful Theme Installation guide article:
How to Install a envato elements Theme on WordPress:
- Step 1: Install Theme Via WordPress Dashboard. Log in to your WordPress admin area. Go to 'Appearance > Themes ’ section. …
- Step 2 (Alternative) : Upload/Install Theme Via FTP. Now, you will need to extract again theme -name.zip. Access your hosting server using an ftp client like FileZilla.
The problem is that there is no stylesheet in the download.
Make sure you select the “Installable WordPress file only” option. If you select “All files & documentation”, you will not be able to install this zip as is. Instead unzip the file and then locate the installable theme file within it. Luckily most developers clearly label their files, so it should be pretty easy to find.

That did it. Thank you!
