Thanks for providing us details.

Well, we did try this scenario for Aspose.Cells using Docker container assuming that “AWS Lambdas” is similar to docker container. We tested this issue on Ubuntu 16.04 x64, in a docker container.
Here are our steps:

The docker we used was: microsoft/dotnet, install it first:

sudo docker pull microsoft/dotnet

Then, after running it straight away, we got the issue in this docker, We got the similar error upon saving to PDF.
We did the following things to sort it out:

We installed libgdiplus (you need to do the same):

apt-get update
apt-get install -y libgdiplus
cd /usr/lib && ln -s libgdiplus.so gdiplus.dll

And install libc6-dev:

apt-get install -y --no-install-recommends libc6-dev

After doing all these steps, the issue passed away, and the PDF file was created successfully.
Would you please check it and share the feedback.
