Looks like this is the culprit:
--without-fonts LibreOffice includes some third-party fonts to
provide a reliable basis for help content, templates, samples, etc. When
these fonts are already known to be available on the system then you
should use this option.
Obviously done to save disk space.
So drop that option from the Dockerfile.
