The error message is telling you that it can't find the file "amsart.cls", so it's asking you to manually tell it where to find that file.  The correct resolution to this error is to install that class file.  On RHEL 8 you can run

dnf whatprovides */amsart.cls

to see if there is a package that includes that file.  If you then install the package it recommends, you can run the check latex command again and see if anything else is missing.
