After updating fedora and reboot the system keeps looping on the login menu.

I can’t get into other users neither and I can’t access the tty with Alt + Ctrl + F2. At this point I’m really lost and I don’t have any more ideas.

At the GRUB2 prompt during boot, choose to edit the boot entry and add

systemd.unit=multi-user.target

...to the kernel line.

This will make it boot into the text login prompt, where you can do more debugging.

    Yes, but I am not sure how long it’ll be that way

I've seen this a few times, and it's universally been something wrong with the user's home directory:

  • Out of disk space (or NFS quota)
  • Not mounted at all
  • Read-only

If you just installed updates, and you don't have a separate /home partition, my money would be on out of disk space.
