I am fairly new to QGIS and i was looking to add more plugins to the core provided in version 2.0 I read the user manual provided by QGIS and found out that there should be an icon "get more" available in plugin manager. Actually in the QGIS version i am using (2.0.1 Dufour) I can only see two icons: installed and settings. How can i get the get more one? Any suggestion? In addition, if i go in settings the status of the plugin repositories is unavailable. Is this "normal"?

I have checked no Get More in Plugin Manager in qgis 2 + ubuntu 13.04 but I get a diffeterent window for the settings.

If your computer is behind a proxy QGIS cannot connect to the plugin repository without the correct settings.
