6. Select your theme from the options and click save and edit. If some problem arises, go to the vendor/magento/module-email/Model/AbstractTemplate.php and comment the “if”  condition of “setForcedArea” function, aprox. at line 535.

7. After changing theme successfully, clear the cache as done before.
