Your server doesn't have the PHP ZipArchive library installed.

Is this local on your development or on a live server (with/without your control of installing things)? Like Hutman says, it's likely your ZipArchive library is either missing or disabled.

the software was installed by a script on a GoDaddy hosting plan. I don't think I can fix server issues. I found that I can download from the community and then upload the packages via FTP

@IJS, does your GoDaddy hosting give you CPanel access? If so, you can select additional php libraries from there.

Yes, I found a panel called PHP extensions. I ticked off the box called "Zip" and now it works. Thanks for helping out a newbie

No problem. You did well to follow those very vague instructions!
