    When I try download suggested plugin such as Massive Addons, I’m getting this message from WP:

    Downloading the install package…

    Unpacking the package…

    The package could not be installed. PCLZIP_ERR_BAD_FORMAT (-10) : Unable to find End of Central Dir Record signature

    Please try to install the plugin via FTP by uploading and extracting the plugin zip file into wp-content/plugins folder. Here you can download the latest version – https://www.8theme.com/downloads/

    This problem could be caused by a few reasons:

    1) You are trying to update theme on the different domain that theme was activated (for example you activated the theme on localhost and moved it to live domain). Then you just need to go to Theme Options > deactivate theme and activate it using your purchase code again

    2) There is no enough space on your server and archive that was downloaded for the update is broken. Make sure that you have no less than 20MB of the free space on your hosting.

    You can also update theme via FTP instead of auto update https://xstore.helpscoutdocs.com/article/63-theme-update

    Hello @Kennylinno1,

    Which plugin is requesting a license code? We kindly ask that you create a new topic and provide your WordPress Admin URL and credentials in the private content area of that topic. We will then investigate the issue and provide assistance.
