Can't update FTL

i'm using Raspbian 8, in order to update my pi-hole i run
curl -sSL https://install.pi-hole.net | PIHOLE_SKIP_OS_CHECK=true sudo -E bash

but it complains:
[i] Main Dependency checks...

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    E: No se ha podido localizar el paquete php5-xml
    (translation of last line: can't locate package php5-xml)

but i do have installed it:
pi@raspberrypi ~ % php -m | grep xml
libxml
xml
xmlreader
xmlwriter

what can i do?

Switch to a supported OS would be my recommendation. Jessie has not been supported by either Pi-hole or Raspbian for several years.

Or, search this category for php5 and you will see some user work-arounds for Jessie.
