[SOLVED] Broken theme: missing style sheet

I've looked through the handful of threads that deal with this issue but haven't seen a specific fix for my current problem.

I've updated WP to 3.0.1 and began having "auto draft" issues while running ata 3.4.9. I researched and discovered my fix was to update to 3.5.3 and go from there. I downloaded the release, unzipped, uploaded it to my theme directory, yadda yadda but when I go into wp to manage my themes and install 3.5.3 it shows up at the bottom of the page saying "broken theme missing style sheet."

I've retraced my steps several times and have completely lost my patience. Can someone please help me successfully upgrade to 3.5.3?

Thank you in advance.

Tell me if these are the steps you took.
  1. Downloaded Atahualpa 3.5.3
  2. Unzipped
  3. Uploaded the atahualpa353 folder to your WordPress Themes folder
If you followed those steps then I would delete the atahualpa353 folder and upload again. Something must have gotten corrupted in the process which happens from time to time.

Does your 3.4.9 version work OK?

I had done as you said...over and over and over. Finally I decided that the ftp client I was using was goofing up. I was using the web ftp client provided on dreamhost's web panel. Apparently it's not very good.

I downloaded FileZilla and uploaded Ata 3.5.3 and tah dah! It was in my themes directory on WP.

Thanks for your help...this forum is fantastic thanks to all of you who provide so much feedback.
