You could change your blogger theme in two ways.

1. Upload downloaded xml template file

To do this click on the Backup/Restore button, then a new window will popup by asking two things, one is backup your existing template and another one is choose theme file and upload it. Theme will automatically applied after upload.

It is better if you backup the existing template before uploading a new theme
Backup file is also an xml file.

Choose file button helps you to browse your downloaded theme file from your hard drive and after opening the theme file Upload button will be enabled, and click that button to upload the theme. If there any tag is not properly closed in your downloaded theme file, it will not be uploaded and applied. You need to check the theme file manually for the missing tag (you can do, if you have at least minimal knowledge in HTML).

2. Alternate way to apply theme via Edit HTML in blogger

As you have seen in the Theme Manager page, there is another button under the Live Preview option called Edit HTML, click on that button to open your blog template live HTML editor page. Page will look like
