Welcome to ask.fedora. Please edit your question by adding the contents of /etc/fstab and the response to df -h so that we can learn what you have mounted and how much free space you have.

You can't run /etc/fstab as a command because it isn't one; it's a world-readable file. Just run cat /etc/fstab as yourself and post the results. And, note that /home has 98G of which 95G are in use.

OK, we've confirmed that /home actually has 98 GB, with 1.9 GB free, and it's formatted with btrfs. I also see that the partition is described as a subvolume. This suggests that some of that missing space is being used for one or more snapshots. Alas, that's about all I know about that kind of file system. Maybe somebody else here will know more.
