Remote software origin name was not found - Fedora Apper Install


I recently switched to Fedora 18 KDE and am having issues installing some software. For example, when I download the Plex RPM from their website, open it with Apper and install, I eventually get the error,
Quote:
The remote software origin name was not found. You may need to enable an item in Software Origins.
I guess this was a thing back in 2012 when Bugzilla reported on it (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=854209) and I get that this should be somewhere in Apper, in Settings, under the Software Origins tab, but I'm uncertain which setting exactly I'm missing. I run into this with other software, as well, but I'll just use Plex as my example. Any thoughts on how I can get this install to work?

Thanks.

A-HA! Note to self: don't use random ISOs from years ago. I'll give that a shot.
