I had this issue while trying to convert some images into a pdf document whith ImageMagick, even with sudo.

The workaround indicated in the topic worked well, but when I see the note on top of the post, I wonder if I should let things like this, or use a more reliable solution (it's on my local machine, not a server) :

Note: the solution in this and other answers involves disabling safety measures that are there to fix arbitrary code execution vulnerabilities. See for instance this ghostscript-related and this ubuntu-related announcement. Only go forward with these solutions if the input to convert comes from a trusted source.
