It would first be an idea to update Joomla to 3.8.8 (released this week).
https://downloads.joomla.org/

Just wondering if it could be:

1) the file you need is another Zip file within the first one (hence the cannot find install file error).
2) an issue with the read/write permissions on the temp folder.

How are you installing / from where are you installing languages?

Which languages are already installed on the site, which version for each?

Also please post a screenshot of the Update Sites page "administrator/index.php?option=com_installer&view=updatesites"

Can you install any other extension than a language pack?
