Adobe Acrobat 8 was released in November 2006, over 10 years ago and any Adobe support for that version ended in November 2011. At that time of the release of Acrobat 8, MacOS 10.4 was the current MacOS version, over five versions of MacOS earlier than what you are trying to install Acrobat 8 on.

As you hopefully are aware, Apple does not fully maintain application compatibility with its new MacOS releases. The likelihood that you could successfully install such an old version of Acrobat on MacOS 10.9 is effectively nil due to these compatibility issues!

Regrettably, your only reasonable option is to obtain the latest version of Acrobat, Acrobat DC Pro for use on MacOS 10.9 (which by the way, is the earliest version of MacOS supported by the latest version of Acrobat).
