Default [Q] Unable to flash any ROM from recovery

I'm running off the Vanir ROM at the moment, but due to the lack of camera wanted to flash it back to something more full-featured.

The problem is, any ROM i've tried (Carbon, RODT, Shohat etc.) comes up as being an invalid zip file.

I've tried both TWRP and Philz recoveries, and re-downloaded the ROM's multiple times.

Why would every zip I try to flash from be invalid?

Using the spring variant G900P.

you might want to flash back to stock via ODIN and re-root

Are you using an external sdcard? If yes drop the ROM in the internal one, and try.

Installing from the internal storage seemed to do the trick - re-flashing to stock did not help.

Thank you!
