After I upgraded my Fedora to version 20, I no longer seem to have a way to update or install software. Where did software and software update go?

I tried typing in "software". Nothing was found. Is there a way to download and install it separately?

It was replaced by gnome-software. Just type software in activities in order to find it. More info here:

Apparently gnome-software did not install when I performed the fedup update from 19 to 20. I searched the fedoraproject.org website for gnome-software, and downloaded the appropriate rpm. Used yum to install, now have the "software" icon in the list of applications.

I had the same issue, upgraded from 19 to 20, and didnt have the software app by default.

If anyone else has this issue, just install it using "yum install gnome-software"
