The error is quite specific and is letting you know the theme you're trying to preview is missing some required files.

Are they missing? That's the first step to take so jump into the code editor and look under the layout folder. If you don't see a theme.liquid file in there you know the error is correct. If you do see the file then something feels very wrong so you may want to contact the support team.

Since you're trying to preview it I assume it's unpublished and might be a copy. If that's the case you may be able to copy the files from the original to get the preview working again.

I jump on these forums to help and share some insights. Not looking to be hired, and not looking for work.

Don't hand out staff invites or give admin password to forum members unless absolutely needed. In most cases the help you need can be handled without that.
