    When I updated to the next theme version previously I had to delete the old theme and install the new theme. Now I cannot delete the old theme because the button has been removed so when I try to upload new theme ( v8.1) it just says upload failed file path already exists ( when it doesn’t) so how is it done now?
    Yours, very annoyed (again after 18 months of continual problems getting towards giving up now. Incidentally last attempt at making child theme failed. BEWARE)

    I was also facing the same issue. What I did is;

    1. Activated one of the default ‘wordpress’ themes.
    2. Deleted the DT Theme
    3. Uploaded the New DT version.
    4. Activated the Child Theme.

    Not sure if I am doing it right. Seems to be working fine for me.

    If you are not sure of what you are doing, better take a complete backup before the updating. Or contact the customer support for assistance.

    You could also use ftp to directly delete the old theme and upload the new version
