    Hi szawp and welcome to WPMU DEV!

    As Eric was hinting at, it seems you may be attempting to install the plugin from your WordPress admin Plugins section?

    Supporter actually requires a few extra steps in the installation process noted at the following:

    And to clarify, you'll want to create a /mu-plugins/ folder in your wp-contents folder and place the bulk of the Supporter files there.

    Let us know how that goes!
