However, the PDF support needs several dependencies:

Core support is provided through WP_Image_Editor_Imagick and requires Imagick, ImageMagick, and Ghostscript support. When not supported, or if the generation fails, WordPress falls back to previous behavior and saves the attachment without adding image previews to meta. (Quote: Mike Schroder Nov. 15th. 2016)
