As has been reiterated innumerable times, Fedora does NOT provide
security updates for EOLed versions, i.e. currently anything earlier
than F25. If you aren't prepared to update at least every other
release, you should consider using a different distro.
In general, Patrick is right. However, if you are desperate, you can
go to the link below and get the src.rpm, and build it on the obsolete
systems. You might have to do some fiddling with requirements, and
there could be dependencies you will also have to install, but it will
give you a package for your earlier fedora distribution.
You are becoming a pseudo packager, and it can be a lot of work with a
significant learning curve if you haven't built packages from src.rpms
before. Upgrading is probably the better answer if at all possible.
