Unable to change skin from Amber

I have been using Amber for a while on my latest pi and felt like a change . Have downloaded many alternatives but they all refuse to install, just get OSMC sad face and a reboot. Advice on what to do please and the best skin for pi.

What version of OSMC are you running ? (Bottom left corner in My OSMC) If you are not on the October update please run updates and make sure you are fully up to date then try changing skins.

Version 10.1 October installed. Just tried another skin, same response.

Try changing from Amber to Confluence first, (confirm the change) then try changing to your other skin - does that work ?

Well done, that worked. Which skin do you recommend?
