I tried the
convert utility from ImageMagick, but it says

libreoffice --headless --convert-to png image.emf
The other answers here did not work for me, but one I found on stakoverflow did
Another way is to use inkscape:
inkscape -e file.png source.emf
See inkscape --help for more export options (area to export, dpi, image resolution, background color etc).
inkscape is a great idea, but unfortunately it does not do a perfect job, for ex. with label positions getting messed in certain cases, as described here: https://gitlab.com/inkscape/inbox/-/issues/2847
So far the only accurate conversion outside of Windows that I've seen is with OpenOffice (headless) or using the unoconv Python script which calls OpenOffice/LibreOffice to do the work. Maybe there's some way to hack together ImageMagick and Mono (libgdi) under Linux but haven't found anything that's done that yet.
