It's possible that Fedora's move to iptables-nft broke the hotspot
Here are the commands I ran to open up the firewall on my laptop:
# firewall-cmd --permanent --add-masquerade
# firewall-cmd --permanent --add-service=dhcp
# firewall-cmd --reload
And to confirm that the changes went through:
# firewall-cmd --list-all
interfaces: enp0s31f6 wlp3s0
services: dhcp dhcpv6-client samba-client ssh
ports: 1025-65535/udp 1025-65535/tcp
This allows my phone to connect to my laptop and browse the internet
normally without having to disable the firewall entirely. I hope that

What does 'dmesg' say when you do this?
Can you connect using the
graphical Network Manager GUI tool as a check?
I never got around to doing a new test and capturing that info. I did
find that turning off firewalld allowed it to work.
