Can you post the output of your console session so we can see what, exactly, you're doing, and what's going on?

It is easier to install it with sudo dnf install lmms. But be carefull because it seems you are using Rawhide!

By default Fedora will use dnf or yum on Fedora 21 and before, not apt-get

hence the use of 'By default' It would be easier to use the built-in package manager.
