If the installation does not work this way and you get an error message, you may try to install the template this way:
Download the latest template version from ThemeForest and unpack all template files to a directory on your pc. Using FTP, upload this directory to the /tmp directory of your Joomla installation on your webserver.
Go to the extensions installer in the Joomla administration, use the "Install from Directory" option to set the directory of your uploaded template files. Click on the Install button and Joomla will install it from the given directory.
