  1. Since some of these OS are much older the download shows as InstallMacOSX so that’s the only file name that shows. The terminal commands you show don’t work.

  2. Double clink the InstallMacOSX.dmg in your Downloads folder. Go ahead and install it to your main drive. It doesn’t write over your OS. It just “installs” the installer in your Applications folder. The new installer in your Applications folder will be named “Install OS X Yosemite” (or similar), and then the terminal commands will work.
