The file doesn't exist because you don't have Octave pointing to your
downloads folder.  The "cd" or "chdir" commands will be helpful here.

That being said, what you have downloaded is a package source, and
requires that you have a compiler to build it.

In general, it's a good idea to specify stuff like:

Your operating system (and version of that).
Your Octave version.
How you installed Octave--on Windows, for example, I believe there are
at least 3 different options.
