Docker repo files search for urls depending on the Fedora release in case of 29 there are no stable release from Docker yeat, the only version you could use is Docker nightly. You may edit your docker.repo file and hardcode the stable url to 28 and see if that will work. Have not try it my self, so not sure it may work for you.

You can also wait until Docker release 29 support.

The issue of Fedora 29 support is also in the Docker project's issue tracker:

I found hardcoding 28 into the stable url (replace $releasever by 28 in /etc/yum.repos.d/docker-ce.repo (mainly based on this tutorial )) to be working for me until docker manages to release the stable version in their fedora 29 branch.
