 Check the folder structure inside the zip file. Could be that it was
zipped up wrong. xml file will need to be in the base folder of the zip
file, so you may have to unzip it, remove one folder level, and rezip
the package.

Or, if there is no xml file, you may have to make one of your own. That
could be a bit involved, but not beyond your abilities, from what I've
seen. ;)

Or, if there is no xml file, you could do a manual install of the
package. That also is a bit involved but you are capable.
