To me, this other answer is no longer a viable solution on Catalina.

I suggest you upgrade to High Sierra. I'm using Pages, Numbers, and KeyNote and have very recent versions that work fine. Much of the new software will not run on systems earlier that High Sierra. The apps I've mention should be loaded when you do this upgrade.
