You need to install the full package, not just the Metadata.

You want both files. The MetaData is just information telling Daz where to find the files and which figures to associate those morphs, materials or models with. The actual ‘meat’ of the package will be the trx or DSON files.

You don’t actually need to install the metadata files—the metadata is in the main installer as well.
