This is not a theme issue or bug.

If you are installing Eram theme from the WordPress theme installer, but get a message that says Are you sure you want to do this?, most likely your web server is configured with a PHP settings that only allow a certain size ZIP file to be uploaded via WP admin.

Most hosting companies configure their servers to only have the maximum file upload size limit at 8-10 MB, some are less. Eram theme zip file is around 14mb because of available plugins and all demos and WordPress is unfortunately giving you a rather ambiguous message in response. 

There two ways to solve this problem.

  • You can get your web host to increase your PHP limits so a larger zip file is allowed to be uploaded. They will know which limits to set if you explain the issue. Here are some recommended configurations:
    • max_execution_time 60
    • memory_limit 128M
    • post_max_size 48M
    • upload_max_filesize 48M
  • You can unzip theme zip file and upload the content directly to WordPress -> wp-content->themes  theme via FTP and then go to dashboard->appearance->themes and activate Eram.
