Fedora 20 on my desktop keeps downloading and installing kernels in the 3.17 familly but for some reason it is still using the 3.16.4 kernel, I also have fedora 20 installed on my laptop and there it is using the 3.17 kernel.

I don't recall ever having done anything to freeze this package... is there a way to make the system using the newer kernels it is downloading and installing ?

Do yum will successfully install kernel packages without any error?
Do you get new entries in grub boot menu?
check permissions and mount options of boot mount point

It's ok, please paste this:
su -c 'yum list kernel > /tmp/tmpkernellist ; cat /boot/grub2/grub.cfg > /tmp/tmpgrub2cfg ; cat /boot/efi/EFI/fedora/grub.cfg > /tmp/tmpgrub2eficfg ; fpaste --fullpath /tmp/tmpkernellist <(ls -lah /boot) <(ls -lah /boot/grub2) /tmp/tmpgrub2cfg /tmp/tmpgrub2eficfg /etc/default/grub /etc/grub.d/* '
