1. F8 has been discontinued, so the repos (repositories) are (probably) shut. In any case, use a current version ie F10 or 11.
2. Highly recommended to use the built-in pkg mgr for SW installs/updates.
On Fedora that's either Add/Remove SW menu option or use the 'yum' cmd from the cmd line, as root.
