As both a TeX and Python user I can provide some more information, or at
least links. states that it's generated using Sphinx 2.4.4. gives information about use
of xelatex and lualatex. There's a change in font handing in Sphinx 4.0.0. hosts automated document generation for Sphinx and
other systems. It's a major publisher of Sphinx documentation, which it
generates from source.

Here's some relevant URLs from Read The Docs.

Here's a suggestion. Create a simple Sphinx project, submit to ReadTheDocs,
and see if it builds correctly. Then, somehow, repeat the build with the
new TeXLive. This might help experts catch and fix problems before users
discover them.

I hope at least some of this helps.

with best regards
