    Good day
    I having this problem and its getting annoying
    I have downloaded a lot of themes and I would say most or majority of the themes always show me an error of this

    The following themes are installed but incomplete. Themes must have a stylesheet and a template.

    Stylesheet is missing.

    Please Advise
    Thanks

    Home Page:
    Some theme archives stored double directories. When you install one theme, it's actually only extracting it on a directory and then WP tells you a broken theme.

    If you see directory structure:
    Code:
    /wp-content/themes/yourthemename/yourthemename
    It should be:
    Code:
    /wp-content/themes/yourthemename
    Just move all content of the last yourthemename to the first yourthemename directory, delete the 2nd one after moving it.
