I’m at work, and I cannot remember whether or not installing the centos-release-scl actually succeeded, but the install devtoolset-8 definitely fails, saying that it cannot be found.

GCC 8 is the system compiler in EL8, so there's no devtoolset-8 for
CentOS 8 (or RHEL 8, for that matter). There should be a devtoolset-9
soon for EL8.
