I just brought an shopify theme from https://themeforest.net. When uploading the Zip Theme File into shopify i keep getting this error message 

 " zip does not contain a valid theme: missing template "layout/theme.liquid"

I google and learned that this is a coding issue; Can anyone help or guide me in the right direction to fix this ?

Hello,

Seems theme missing main file theme.liquid
To confirm unzip theme in your computer and check under layout folder for file theme.liquid.
If its not available ( 99% chances it missing ) contact with theme author.

Thanks

MY Theme Folder when unzipped Looks nothing like yours. I reached out to the author for supported but they have not responded.

When unzipped this is what the folders look like
