Somebody has removed the standard CentOS repos from your system and replaced them with a single private repo with no updates.
You need to download and install centos-release-5-10.el5.centos.rpm to receive continued support.

Your project may be stable but security advisories come out all the time and these are fixed by updates in the base and updates CentOS repos. If they are disabled then you will not get the updates. If you install random RPMs from third parties then your system will soon be unstable as they are not provided by CentOS and will most likely corrupt your system, perhaps beyond repair.

I think you also have a misunderstanding about CentOS 5.8. That is CentOS 5. Not 5.8. Likewise 5.10 is a relatively minor update to CentOS 5 and should be compatible with all previous releases of CentOS 5.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!
Info for USB installs on
CentOS 5 is dead, do not use it.
