After installing Fedora 28 Server, and then:

  dnf groups install "Xce Desktop"    
  systemctl set-default graphical.target

the graphical desktop does not show up after reboot. What am I missing?

Think you need to install gdm

… or sddm.

The xfce spin uses lightdm as display manager. gdm, lxdm, or sddm would do as well. Whichever you will be using must be enabled, for example

systemctl enable lightdm.service
