    Are you uploading the actual install folder and not the folder its contained in?

    I haven't used Wordpress in a while so I don't remember if it shows an error message, but maybe the theme directory is not writable?

    You could alternatively unzip the theme and upload it manually to the Themes folder which is located "wp-content/themes" and drop the unzipped folder in there. Once you have done that log into your wp-admin panel and go to "Appearance > Themes" in the menu then activate your new theme.

    It means the folder you are trying to upload into will not except the files you are trying to upload as the folder is not writeable so it cannot make changes on the folder. If you are using an FTP client like Filezilla or WinSCP then you can do it by right clicking on the folder and choosing the change permissions option. Try setting the folder to writeable and give it a shot

    Thats because the folder "flatsome_main" does not have the right files in it to be a theme.

    You must of uploaded the wrong files
