Issue with nbconvert converting pdfs

Hello, I am running a centos 7 server and I have a few issues with nbconvert. To start, when I attempted to run # yum install texlive-xetex texlive-fonts-recommended texlive-generic-recommended (following nbconverts install guide), both texlive-fonts-recommended and texlive-generic-recommended packages were unavailable.
Since texlive-xetex installed, when clicking on download as pdf jupyter would tell me what package I was missing.
I installed the following packages.
latex
texlive-full
texlive-tcolorbox
texlive-parskip
texlive-adjustbox
texlive-upquote
texlive-eurosym
texlive-ucs
texlive-url
texlive-zapfding
texlive-titling
texlive-latex
texlive-jknapltx
texlive-hyperref
texlive-rsfs
texlive-amsfonts
texlive-ursfs

I now get this error from jupyter and I am unsure what package I might be missing. Has anyone run into this issue before? Any help is appreciated.

nbconvert failed: PDF creating failed, captured latex output:

I have attempted to remove all the packages above and then downloaded and installed the source code that texlive provides (2020 version). Then I set the path, manpath, and info path. The new error is xelatex cannot be found on path. If I follow the path that I just set, xelatex is listed.

Issue fixed by creating a symbolic link from xelatex to /usr/bin

how can crate symbolic link?
