Description:
imagemagick 7.0.8.14-1 does not work with PDF files.
Commands like 'display' and 'convert' produce the following output

$ display x.pdf
display: attempt to perform an operation not allowed by the security policy `PDF' @ error/constitute.c/IsCoderAuthorized/408.

convert x.pdf y.jpg
convert: attempt to perform an operation not allowed by the security policy `PDF' @ error/constitute.c/IsCoderAuthorized/408.
convert: no images defined `x.jpg' @ error/convert.c/ConvertImageCommand/3288.

$ convert x.jpg z.pdf
convert: attempt to perform an operation not allowed by the security policy `PDF' @ error/constitute.c/IsCoderAuthorized/408.

Additional info:
imagemagick 7.0.8.14-1
libmagick 7.0.8.14-1
The previous versions (7.0.8.13-1) do work.

Steps to reproduce:
Install version 7.0.8.14-1.
Reinstalling 7.0.8.13-1 remedies the problem.

Parsing PDF was disabled[1] in /etc/ImageMagick-7/policy.xml due to its inherent insecurity. The same thing did Ubuntu and perhaps more distros will follow as this is recommendation from security researchers.

You may enable it locally by removing 'PDF' from below line:
<policy domain="coder" rights="none" pattern="{PS,PS2,PS3,EPS,PDF,XPS}" />
