I heard about that "Dominion" system of electronic voting.
Did any states use it during the 2020 election? And if so, which exactly?

Twenty-eight states used voting equipment from Dominion Voting Systems in 2020. According to an article entitled Election 2020: Setting the record straight on their website, the company notes that "voting has proceeded smoothly in all 28 states where our systems are used".
Also on their website, Dominion provides a map showing states in which their systems are used:
In list form, these states are: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, & Wisconsin. Puerto Rico also uses systems from Dominion, but isn't a state.
Texas DOES NOT use Dominion Voting Systems.
Per the publicly accessible PDF from the State of Texas Secretary of State document (dated October 2-3, 2019)
REPORT OF REVIEW OF DOMINION VOTING SYSTEMS DEMOCRACY SUITE 5.5-A.
The examiner reports identified multiple hardware and software issues that preclude the Office of the Texas Secretary of State from determining that the Democracy Suite 5.5-A system satisfies each of the voting-system requirements set forth in the Texas Election Code. Specifically, the examiner reports raise concerns about whether the Democracy Suite 5.5-A system is suitable for its intended purpose; operates efficiently and accurately; and is safe from fraudulent or unauthorized manipulation. Therefore, the Democracy Suite 5.5-A system and corresponding hardware devices do not meet the standards for certification prescribed by Section 122.001 of the Texas Election Code.
Accordingly, based upon the foregoing, I hereby deny certification of Dominion Voting Systems' Democracy Suite 5.5-A system for use in Texas elections.
According to NGO Verified Voting (as quoted by Reuters), 24 states and one unincorporated territory used voting equipment by Dominion Voting Systems in the November 2020 US elections: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Puerto Rico, Tennessee, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin.
Person claims that Texas Board of Elections dumped Dominion systems in 2018 because the systems are vulnerable to "undetected and unauditable manipulation" p. 8 https://www.scribd.com/document/485884541/Complaint-Cj-Pearson-v-Kemp-11-25-2020#download&from_embed
