Update Sphinx presentation plugin

Currently the OSGeoLive docs generate a presentation based on revealJS using the plugin sphinxjp.themes.revealjs -

This plugin has not been updated for a couple of years and only works on sphinx==1.6.5.

A newer plugin which should also generate a presentation can be found at and works with Sphinx > 3.0.0. Updating OSGeoLive-docs to use this plugin will allow using more recent versions of Sphinx.

Ubuntu Focal does not include sphinx 3.x so this would break our deb builds.

Please postpone for Ubuntu 22.04
