Problem upgrading from 15.7.2 to 15.8

I just tried to update from 15.7.2 to latest 15.8 because of the security update.
I simply logged in via ssh as root and dnf update

What I get is:

Running transaction check
Transaction check succeeded.
Running transaction test
Transaction test succeeded.

Error: Transaction failed

I found a “solution” on stackoverflow sudo gitlab-rake gitlab:storage:migrate_to_hashed
but that didn`t help or work.

Any ideas what to do?
