    Check and see if there is a sub folder you should be zipping and uploading instead of the whole file.

    This is almost always due to not unzipping/unraring your files correctly. If you download a theme, don't assume you can just upload it to wordpress and it work. There is often other things zipped/rar'd up with the theme like documentation, PSDs, plugins, etc. Extract your initial download and see what's inside. If there's another theme zip file, upload that instead.

    You tell me that style.css file missing.
    it's just one theme or all theme.
    another theme is download and run them.
    i think your zip file is missing.
