UPDATE: this could be a version issue, should I update to the non-stable 2.0.4? currently 2.0.0 I install it using git clone, follow by composer install.

I know this should seem obvious to someone, but clearly it's not. as state in the documentation

In Admin, go to Stores > Configuration > Design.

but there is only a robot txt edit as seen in the below screen shot

design tab showing only robot .txt editor

I track down the issue on github #4251

All design configurations were moved to Content -> Design -> Configuration

when I get there, my custom theme successfully show up, but no button to change it, as seen below. there is no option to change from the default lumia theme to blank theme neither.

enter image description here

is it just me? or I am blind and missing something really obvious? my magento version is 2.0.0
