How to Fix

At present MS don’t have a permanent workaround; The only option we have at this point is to follow the below steps:
1.       Create a site template excluding content that contains theme
2.       Create a site/site collection out of that site template
3.       Copy the sub folders inside random number folder under _catalogs/Themes/Themed/<Random Number> folder from source to destination
