Hi @madhudollu and thanks for the ticket.

Are you able to reproduce this error without the install WooCommerce step?

If the error only happens with WC installed (and activated, I presume), it suggests the issue is in the plugin and best reported to their developers.

Additionally; @madhudollu have you enabled the twentytwentythree theme for the multisite site?

If the site doesn't have the theme as an allowed theme, it won't be able to find the parent theme, which would cause this I believe.
