I installed Magento version 2.1.0. When I go into STORES -> CONFIGURATION -> GENERAL -> Design -> it shows "Search Engine Robots" just as here:

Magento2 In Store/Configuration/General/Design I can only see Search Engine Robots section

Is there something wrong with my installation/configuration? It seems not logical. What do I need to do to fix this?

There is nothing wrong with your installation. I believe they moved it to the design tab in a newer version.

In my 2.1 version also it shows same. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B1aJL9nhfbfFZ3JKeWszcVczSjQ/view?usp=drivesdk

It seems the theme configuration was moved.

It can be found in main administration menu:

Content -> Design -> Configuration Click on scope you are interested in(probably the first one) and change 'Applied theme'.


After Magento new version it has been moved to Content -> Design -> Configuration and from here you can make changes to select theme.
