Unable to directly install in WordPress

I’m having trouble installing the Bricks theme version 1.9.8 in WordPress. When I try to upload and install the file directly through the WordPress theme installer, I encounter an error.

I’ve double-checked that the zip file is not corrupted and contains the correct theme files. However, WordPress doesn’t seem to recognize it as a valid theme package.

I wanted to bring this to the community’s attention and see if anyone else has faced a similar issue or has any suggestions on how to resolve it. Is there a specific way to install this version of the Bricks theme?

What error message do you get?

Are you trying to install via Appearance > Themes > Add New Theme?

or as a Plugin?

Trying to install Bricks as a Plugin will cause an error.
