Is this a bug in ImageMagick convert, specifically for Ubuntu 18.04 LTS, 
or is converting to pdf turned off by intention?

If you think it is a bug, I can write a bug report.

A simple command line with ImageMagick convert works for me.

I tested with the following command line (in a directory with 14 png 
files), and there will be one picture per page in the pdf file.

convert  *.png out-parrot.pdf

But there can be problems with some versions of convert

It works as intended with the version of convert in Parrot 4.4

$convert --version
Version: ImageMagick 6.9.10-23 Q16 x86_64 20190101 https://imagemagick.org

but it does not work with the version of convert in Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS 
(up to date in February 2019)

$ convert --version
Version: ImageMagick 6.9.7-4 Q16 x86_64 20170114 http://www.imagemagick.org

This version is 'not authorized' to write pdf files

$ convert  *.png out-ubuntu.pdf
convert-im6.q16: not authorized `out-ubuntu.pdf' @ 

$ apt-cache policy imagemagick
