I am having this issue as well. I have the latest version of Silverstripe installed and downloaded one of the themes from the .org website.

I've had the same issue, I think its a difference between the new version of SS and the older themes. I even had a problem with the tutorial theme.

I've resolved it by installing black candy when setting up SS and copying the contents of the stylesheets out of the theme I wanted into the blackcandy files.

Hope that helps.

same issue here. and i'm using the blackcandy theme ...
Could it be that it doesn't work when it is installed in a subfolder?

I can create this error message if I use a theme name that is not existing. So I guess, that your issue is related to a typo in the theme selection, upper/lower case mismatch or file protection of the theme folder.

I hope, this helps,

It took me some very frustrating hours to found out that templates with underscores or camel case names generally lead to the upper error message...

- mytemplate

Doesn't work:
- my_template
- MyTemplate
- myTemaplte

best regards

It seems that theme names must be all lowercase and without any other characters.
