    Trying to install a theme. Got an error stating
    The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

    Make sure the theme decompressed correctly. It should not be in a zipped folder or have any nested directories.

    If you upload the theme using your ftp client or the file manager in your hosts control panel, then first you must un-zip the theme to your desktop, then you just upload the entire un-zipped theme directory to /wp-content/themes/. That should do it.
