Known issue on Linux Debian when generating the images in PDF format

If you get a "write EPIPE" error:

 "stack": "Error: write EPIPE\n    at WriteWrap.onWriteComplete [as oncomplete] (internal/stream_base_commons.js:83:16)",

 

It may be due to an open issue documented here and here.

 

As a workaround, you should execute the following command:

export OPENSSL_CONF=/etc/ssl/

 

which will allow the generation of images in PDF format.
