It means the host is F28 and guests will be F30. 

It is passed to virt-install

--os-variant $(KVM_OS_VARIANT)

KVM/qemu on the host do not recognize F30 as a guest os-variant. It should 
be OK to force it to F28 if your host is F28. 

to get a list of supported Fedora variants 
osinfo-query --fields=short-id,version os vendor="Fedora Project"
