I don't know the details of RHEL 8, but probably the latex packages didn't get installed or latex doesn't know where to find the packages. Looking at the installation documentation for RHEL8, I would guess that texlive-latex would install everything (texlive is usually all packages). Perhaps it needs to be reinstalled?

The original pasted output references TeXLive 2018, so upgrading is definitely the most likely solution.
