Then you should update first ;)

It also says "Configuration of Shibboleth SPs, which should be running
version 2.4 or later, is detailed below." at the beginnin, in 3.1.

IMHO the headings of that page are misleading. I don't take "3.1.2 SP
installed prior to version 2.4" to mean "SPs with versions < 2.4"
(since that would also contradict 3.1), but merely as a hint, that if
you installed an earlier version of the SP and only updated the
software (to at least 2.4) without ever changing the configuration,
you would need to add the DiscoveryFeed handler yourself.
Adding that confoguration to a software version without support for
that (i.e., any version below 2.4) will lead to just that error
If you come up with a description/heading that's both short enough and
clearer feel free to change that page (I can't think of anything atm).
