This LibreOffice version is outdated.

For a "test.odt" that contains the text "Test 123", this gives the
expected result for me for both, a current development version and the
Debian-provided LibreOffice 7.4.4:
$ libreoffice --cat /tmp/test.odt
If it doesn't work with an up to date LibreOffice version, please report
a bug in our Bugzilla issue tracker (and attach the test.odt you're using):
Since you're using an AppImage version of LibreOffice, I'd also suggest
to first check whether it works when using the version from the official
LibreOffice download page  instead.
