From what I gather:

I need to add a repo?

http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/basex:/opensuse/CentOS_7/

I see that:

http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/basex:/opensuse/CentOS_7/home:basex:opensuse.repo

shows:

[home_basex_opensuse]
name=BaseX openSUSE Build (CentOS_7)
type=rpm-md
baseurl=http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/basex:/opensuse/CentOS_7/
gpgcheck=1
gpgkey=http://download.opensuse.org/repositories/home:/basex:/opensuse/CentOS_7/repodata/repomd.xml.key
enabled=1

which is for CentOS 7.

It doesn’t appear that the person maintaining those repos have built it for CentOS 8. Feel free to contact the repo maintainer, or rebuild the RPM yourself from the source RPM.

sudo yum -y group install base-x

It looks like basex and base-x are slightly different.
