More information:

Berkeley Roshan Churchill reported a regression for the recent security update for ghostscript, announced as DLA-1527-1, caused by an incomplete fix for CVE-2018-16543. The pdf2ps tool failed to produce any output and aborted with /rangecheck in .installpagedevice error.

For Debian 8 Jessie, this problem has been fixed in version 9.06~dfsg-2+deb8u10.

We recommend that you upgrade your ghostscript packages.
