I got the same results (TeXLive 2018, updated today, Windows 7). However, both of the following changes corrected the problems:

Load the libertine package instead of fontspec:
and omit the \fontspec commands.

Or move the \fontspec commands before all the font commands. For example,
    \fontspec{Linux Biolinum O}{\bfseries\sffamily

I can't explain why the original doesn't work.
