It's not really clear what it is you're doing but template merging is not designed to be used with importing an old style. It is designed to be used with upgrades.

If you have installed a third party style, make a child version of it and make your customisations in that.

It was a template we edited off our framework, but not really sure why it was showing as outdated out of no where. When I installed your style it was fine, one thing that may lead to this is editing the "Master Style" which you want to avoid doing.

Copy your custom template contents to a text file.

Revert the template.

Add your customisations back to the template, referring to the text file.
