Description of problem: Upgrade from Fedora Desktop v. 27 to v. 28 had for result s to suppress all non system targets (the ones created by the user, both filkes and folders) which were contained in Home.
Version-Release number of selected component: no instruction available about the specification of the component in that case.
How reproducible in terminal:
# dnf install -y dnf-plugin-system-upgrade
# dnf system-upgrade -y download --refresh–releasever=28
Expected results: To preserve all existing contents in Home folder including those which are manually created.
Additional info: v.28 upgraded as beta release.
We believe that the problem can be triggered by rpm-striplets in particular package. Please can you narrow the issue like which package upgrade created the issue. Unfortunately without additional data we cannot solve the issue.
You might guide me to dig from the upgraded computer the relevant information –for instance logs– so it can be useful to you. As far as I understand package upgrade you refered to is part of the Description.
On the other non upgraded laptop (in v.27) I have same operartion may be reconducted if your consider it a requirement to serve the purpose of a customised testing case. But I would rather it not to affect existent contents In Home
Correction: '# dnf system-upgrade -y download --refresh --releasever=28'
Please can you confirm one thing. After '# dnf system-upgrade -y download --refresh --releasever=28' did you performed "dnf system-upgrade reboot"? If not there is nearly 100% change that the problem you experienced is not relatade to DNF or packaging at all.
Please can you provide dnf.log (/var/log/dnf.log)?

dnf logs samples
That is presently the command that allowed the system to be upgraded.
In dnf.log I cannot found anything incorrect. I do not understand what happen to your system. Maybe an output of history command could provide clue. I am sorry but it looks like that I cannot help you and I do not know what component could trigger your problem. Sorry. I only suggest:
1. this is not an issue of DNF (you are the the only reporter but your upgrade case is common)
2. Some package that was upgraded produce an issue - I canout even guess which one.
3. Please check your history if there is some strange command (rm -rf * or other mass removal command)
