I upgraded to F20 and now Chromium does not work. Someone said to downgrade the repo then it will let me install it. How do I do that?

What repository are you using for the installation of chromium. Can you post the output of ls -l /etc/yum.repos.d ? You are aware that F20 is in alpha state, so everything might not work as you expect..

It's quite possible that the chromium repository has not been updated to support F20 yet. You might have to use the Fedora 19 packages for the time being.

I don't see an F20 repository here:

I think "we" shouldn't recommend that repo for everyday use, it is more for testing, I respect its author and its packaging skills, but packages are outdated and probably chromium version in it is vulnerable, so not very good for regular use, for testing it is OK.

That's Chrome, not Chromium
