The Add/Remove Software tool requires superuser privileges.

Are you running this with the correct privileges?

How, exactly, can you not add or remove packages? Are there any errors listed?

Did you check if all was working ok manually with the command rpm or yum ? And if u have a repo database ? I already had this problem once and it was my repo that has a problem.
