This seems to be occurring due to a Shopify update. It seems that themes can no longer be uploaded without a section.
​

At least one section is mandatory for it to work.
​
To fix the issue, open the edit code of on your theme and copy the following to the "index.json" file.
​

{
"sections": {
"1d0bb279-0557-4faf-9a5d-27a9ac55062c": {
"type": "featured-image",
"settings": {
"show_on_desktop": true,
"show_on_mobile": true,
"full_width": true,
"section_style": "section-blank",
"image_link": ""
}
}
},
"order": [
"1d0bb279-0557-4faf-9a5d-27a9ac55062c"
]
}


This will add a featured image section to the theme and the "add section" button will appear below it.
​
You can then delete the featured image section, however only after they add a second section.
