Yes, you can. I found this link, as I have to do this with only "one" of my Weebly sites due to a client request. You can give it a try. Good luck. 🙂smallbusiness.chron.com/convert-weebly-theme-wordpress-44850.html

It seems the error you might be getting is because you're clicking on the link instead of right clicking and selecting Save As for the file.
