To upload in .zip mode is OK. Usually error 403 means that You don't have permission, ie Your files or folders may have wrong permissions.
All files must have permission 644 and folders 755.
But as I can see You get message "Controller 403.shtml not found", it means that system cannot find it.
The reason may be, that it is really missing or the path is wrong.
What to do. First of all, try again for example pressing F5. If don't help, upload again and try then agan. If still not help, check - maybe You put in configuration file https, replace it to http and try again. If You uses Chrome or some Chromium based browser, You may need to delete cookies and restart browser.
If still not help, try to find another sorce package and use it. If still don't help, upload using ftp or sftp in binary mode.
That's all what I can recommend.

Also worth checking flood control on your server as that can throw the same error during installs.
