<h1>Installing Theme from uploaded file: soup-stock-release.zip</h1>
Unpacking the package…
Installing the theme…
The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.
Theme installation failed.

We have not seen this before.
Is it possible that you installed it as a theme instead of installing it as a plugin?

Yes, that’s exactly what I did.

Found this explanation on Generate Press’s site: https://docs.generatepress.com/article/missing-style-css/
When you purchase one of our add-ons or GP Premium, you may assume that it’s a theme which you need to install via the “Themes” area of your WordPress Dashboard. Doing so will result in an error telling you that the theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.
This is happening because our add-ons – including GP Premium – are actually plugins.
This means you need to upload them through the “Plugins” area of the Dashboard.
For step by step instructions on how to install your add-ons, check out this article.”

The Vacation Soup installer isn’t a theme – It’s a plugin that removes the initial wordpress installation and installs the VS theme, content and plugins.
You will need to remove what you have, install a fresh WordPress installation and then install the plugin
I’m sure that Francis will help if you are stuck
