    It's a permissions issue, and it's probably best to do a manual update through your FTP client rather than start messing wtih adding/removing permissions on the server.

    when you upload a new unzipped theme (not zip format )in themes folder it should show in your admin panel and all you need to do is activate it.

    If the theme not compatible could be reason why you getting error.

    Maybe you could also (if possible) mention which theme you're trying to install.

    Sometimes it may be a theme issue... but as @govpatel mentioned, you need to activate it via your wordpress admin.
