    Can you update other free themes from through the WordPress in-dashboard update system? If not, then it’s probably a permissions issue with your installation of WordPress and the directory on your server where WordPress places the themes.

    And if you have no problem updating other free themes from, then it’s most likely just a temporary glitch with download coming from Envato servers. I would try again tomorrow and see if you get the same issue.

    And lastly, if you can’t get the in-dashboard system to work, you can always just download it from your Downloads page, and upload it to your site manually, the old-fashioned way through your FTP client.


    Hi – I found another way to approach the upload (using multi-select upload window instead of within the theme post)

    Theme updated successfully.

    Update fixed my problem with default font and default colors being applied properly. So much better!

    Thanks. Close post.
