Core Dumped when attempting update from 1.8.2 to 1.9 (or above)

Thank you in advance for any assistance or direction you may be able to provide as I’m fairly new to meteor and have inherited a few applications.

I am currently in the process of updating a meteor application to the latest version but hit a snag at v1.9. Specifically, when I run “meteor update --release 1.9” (or any subsequent version) I am met with a fairly unhelpful error:

ematthews@ematthews-vm-mint:~/projects/website/junction$ meteor update --release 1.9

I’ve attempted to scour the internet for others running into a similar issue and haven’t had much luck. My suspicion is that there may be some conflict with some of the project dependencies as many of them are quite old; however, I haven’t been able to make much progress from attempting to comment out packages and retry as of yet.

Any solutions or even guidance on how to go about debugging this issue would be greatly appreciated!
