Seeing a weird theme update notification for directory theme


I'm seeing this weird theme update notification for directory theme. When I update it, the theme changes. Directory theme gets completely overwritten by this new theme that has nothing to do with the directory theme.

Furthermore, there was a theme folder called 'default' and it was for the directory theme. This theme folder has been overwritten by this new one.

Here's the details of this new theme:
