It is possible to convert PDF to any supported document format; however, the answer by @m.a.riosv is correct, because the result will be unusable. See, however, this question for a macro.

However, your question, when read literally, makes no sense. You ask about "issue" that is warnings issued while running LO in headless mode. They aren't a problem, so nothing needs to be done about them.
