It's in the Joomla 3.x distribution package.
Installed with Joomla.

Just download Joomla, then unzip. Copy the templates/protostar folder from the Joomla installation package, upload it by ftp to your site templates folder, use the 'discover' function of the Joomla extensions manager to complete the installation.

Or make a zip file from the templates/protostar folder, upload and install using the Joomla installer.

It should work either way I think.

Good point.

If you make a zip file and install using the Joomla installer then the language files should install automatically, because they are included in the language folder in the template.

But if you upload by ftp you will need to copy the files from the template language folder to the site language folder.

I have now tried to install the Protostar template, according to all your instructions, but I only get the message that it is already installed.
See picture:

When I check in FileZilla the template files are there, but does not appear in admin mode> Extensions> Templates, just one template, not the Protostar .

What to do?

It sounds like you did not uninstall the protostar template completely, I think that you will need to do this before attempting to re-install.

If you go to Extensions->manage->manage, and search for 'protostar' you will likely see an entry there, select it and click the 'uninstall' button.

You may get an error message when you do, but it should remove the entry, as long as it does that then you are OK. Then you should be able to re-install it.

A common error ... users delete the style in Templates and (mistakenly) think they have uninstalled it.
