centos 8 = no kde no okular no filezilla no gwenview no krdc no konsole and many more are all deprecated!
it is crazy, what is left?
centos 8 is become a very clean OS for server usage but hard to use for desktop.
Are there better althnative software I have missed in centos 8?
konsole=terminal
filezilla = ?
okular = ?
filezilla =?
gwenview =?
krdc =?

tips and fact found in this few days:
1. we must use virtualbox v6 and set display to VMSVGA when install, or no display after bootup
2. redhat acquired centos and IBM acquired redhat
3. all people can create a free subscription redhat developer account to download RHEL 8 and install, it looks like centos will also be deprecated

It's been known for some considerable time that RHEL 8 has deprecated all of KDE and the majority of the packages you are complaining about are KDE. There may be a KDE coming to EPEL soon but a lot of EPEL packages depend on the EPEL devs having access to an el8 system and not all have RHEL.
CentOS 6 will die in November 2020 - migrate sooner rather than later!
CentOS 5 has been EOL for nearly 3 years and should no longer be used for anything!

If you're looking to install Filezilla, go the flatpak route. I installed this with no problems. In fact I did this for audacity as well. This was also not in the EPEL repo, this was a quick and easy solution. For more info check out - https://flatpak.org/
