You're trying to use the 1.9 ruleset with 1.8.x.  The rules you want are:

"Current" in this instance means the current development version, which
will be released as 1.9 at some point.  If you're new to Snort, you're
probably better off continuing with the 1.8.x you have, and using the
ruleset I mentioned.
