    when I try to install a plug-in I'm getting this error

    "The plugin does not have a valid header."

    Probably would help to specify:

    (a) the plugin name and version
    (b) what version of WordPress you're using
    (c) any other pertinent information about your WordPress environment - OS, PHP version, web server...

    For what its worth, a simple Google on your subject title throws up quite a few articles on the issue (not necessarily solutions). Probably stating the obvious here - but have you looked at the header of the plugin in question - and is it actually valid?

    Has anyone found a solution to this problem, because I am having the same problem, only after I did an automatic update? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I saw one suggested work-around, don't know yet if it works. FYI.

    Looks like this error is very common, but the mistake I was doing is funny. I was installing a theme in plugins. :)

    The plugin (oh sorry the Theme) is installed here

    It happens due to duplicate copy of a folder inside a folder. It happens when you unzip a folder. like /wordpress/wordpress/...

    make sure that you keep on level only.
