I think the error says it all: "support for URL transfers was disabled when
Octave was built".
The RedHat package you are using has curl related functions disabled, so you
can't use the "-forge" option to install a package. Since you have
downloaded the package this option is not necessary. Instead you should run
pkg install symbolic-2.6.0.tar.gz
