I clicked on the activate button, the theme changes on frontend, but on active status is not applied to the activated theme.
In my case the reason is that the folder name of the activated theme is numeric, for some reason, wordpress doesnt handle numeric folder name nicely.
Change the theme folder name to alphabetic solves the problem.
Hope this helps you
