Failing all that, `fo2pdf` falls back to the only free-as-in-liberty
XSL-FO formatter, [Apache FOP][5].  FOP
may be available through your OS's package system.  For instance, with
Debian type OSes, you can just say

    $ sudo apt install fop

and on RHEL/CentOS/Fedora:

    $ sudo yum install fop






If FOP is not in your OS's package system, you can download
pre-built binaries from the FOP web site that will run with the
version of Java that almost certainly is available with your OS's
package system.

You might be wondering why `fo2pdf` looks for FOP last, given that

That command also works in Fedora as of this writing. Since `fop` hasn’t
been removed from Fedora, I suspect this package is moving to EPEL for
use in EL8, and it just waiting for someone to get around to doing the
port. Meanwhile, rebuilding Fedora’s package on your OS should work.
