the solution is easy

unzip the theme , you will find a folder click it you will find 2 folders and one file (themes, modules, config.xml) , this is the problem they should not be into a folder, they sould be in the begining

solution

select the three files (themes, modules, config.xml) or more if you have more files, right click , send to zip (or use any other compression software you use)

reupload the final zip it will work now if God want

i just suppose that your theme was exported with old themeinstaller module

if i were you i will try to import it with some old themeinstaller addon

but im not sure at all that problem is related to this

Thanks for the response, I deleted the themeinstaller module from prestashop (version 2.8) and uploaded the old version of theme installer (2.5). The error continues to show up though. I would really like to be able to use the newer version of prestashop but if I am unable to use a theme I will have to roll back to an older version. Any help is definitely appreciated.

The solution is,

1. unzip your theme zip folder

2. select modul+themes+config.xml together

3. for WINDOWS right click and choose Send to -> Compressed (Zip) Folder

4. rename folder to theme name dont include number space and special character e.g dot or dash

5. try to import your new zip folder in backoffice.

It doesn't work... I have added into theme folder config.xml, config.rb , but it doesn't take any visible effect. Prestashop still answering after saving chosen archive file: configuration file corrupted

I go to the prestashop-> themes and i open default-bootstrap folder
i select folder modules + config.xml BUT I dont have themes folder here, should i go and copy all files from theme folder?
after selecting i import only those files? what about the rest? 
sorry guys for stupid questions but im so noob --;

After struggling for a couple of hours this is what I've found out:

 

  1. Some themes are exported from some sites by zipping the files directly from the root folder instead of zipping de content files and dirs. In this case, the solution is the one shared by [email protected]
  2. In my case point 1 hasn't been enough. The problem in other templates is that de Config.xml file is included as config.xml (not C in capital lettres) and this is going to fail when uploading the ZIP in case sensitive Systems, like Linux. Renaming config.xml to Config.xml has worked for me.
