[US] No Quickmap Services Plugin or Web Column in any Version After Ver 3.14

I'm not aware of any major changes in the Plugin Manager between QGIS
versions 3.14 and 3.24.  When using the Plugin Manager (from the
Plugin menu), if you don't find the plugin you are trying to install,
check that you are searching "All" plugins (see the tabs on the left).

It sounds like your current installation doesn't have all the plugins
installed that you may have had before.  Usually, when I upgrade to a
new version, it remembers all the plugins, so I'm not sure how they
might have disappeared.

Each plugin behaves a bit differently.   Some add a toolbar icon,
others an entry under the "plugins" menu or other menus.  The "web"
menu will only appear after you have installed plugins that create
that menu, such as QuickMapServices.

QuickMapServices did make a recent change within the last month or so,
basically cleaning up the list of basemaps available in the
"contributed pack" (QMS settings > More Services > Get contributed
pack).  They removed many basemaps that were no longer working, so the
list does appear shorter than before.
