Description of problem:
When installing the docker rpm on a system without VARIANT_ID in /etc/os-release, one gets /usr/share/docker-storage-setup/docker-storage-setup-default copied into /etc/sysconfig/docker-storage-setup.
This file doesn't contain STORAGE_DRIVER=overlay2, unlike all other candidates.
Not setting STORAGE_DRIVER=overlay2 is problematic since docker-storage-setup defaults to devicemapper, while docker itself defaults to overlay2. docker-storage-setup is executed on every start of docker (I think), but usually fails becuase there is no space for the necessary logical volume. Should it happen to succeed, it would suddenly change the storage driver of docker and make all images and containers disappear.
I think all docker-storage-setup candidates should set STORAGE_DRIVER=overlay2.
That makes them all identical, so maybe there isn't any need for the VARIANT_ID complexity.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 27 is nearing its end of life.
On 2018-Nov-30 Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for
Fedora 27. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases
that are no longer maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as
EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '27'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 27 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 27 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2018-11-30. Fedora 27 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
