When I run df -h I get the following return:

[root@localhost ~]# df -h

I'm running a Fedora VM on OracleBox. I'm not going to increase the size of /dev/mapper/fedora-root, is there any way to reduce the size of it?

Check if there are any logs which can be removed / compressed using find / -type f -name *.log

Also, if its possible try adding more storage to allow breathing space for system.
