comment qgis-2.2.0 database tab missing
That's not Fedora-specific. I also noted that new QGIS versions on Ubuntu did not update qgis-python by default.

.qgs file, not .prj file. The second is something completely different!

comment How to add a lat/lon grid to a map using azimuthal projection?
In the layer labelling form, you can click on the eicon at the top to enter an expression like COORD/1000.

comment How to add a lat/lon grid to a map using azimuthal projection?
Switch project CRS to EPSG:4326, use Vector -> Research Tools > Vector grid: Take the extent of the canvas and round the values to full 10/20/.. degrees and use a cell parameter x of 10 or more, then use Vector -> Geometry Tools -> densify Geometry to get more points on the lines, the set Project CRS back to the equal areas projection. You can label the vector grid too with the COORD field.

I wonder why the field calculator did not work for you.

Note that a degree grid would be bended with the projection you have chosen.

How did you create the grid? And do you want a degree grid (as you write in the question header) or a rectangle grid in the projection?

comment How do I interpret this proj4string and why doesn't changing units change its resuls?
The string only says that map coordinates are us-feet. No word about decimal degrees coordinates. If you have degrees and want to get feet, you have to reproject your data using one of the three tools I mentioned. There you can say that the input source CRS is WGS84, NAD83 or NAD27 in degrees, and what you want as target CRS.

qgistutorials.com/en/docs/working_with_attributes.html might be a start-off. Just try it out on a copy of your datasource.

comment How to read Sentinel-1 tiff images from ESA scihub with Python (and GDAL)?
This page earth.esa.int/web/sentinel/user-guides/sentinel-1-sar/… notes that there are still tiff files inside the folder structure. Or is your data something else?

If your data is in meters, the error will be too, unless it is scaled to the map extent.
