I can reproduce the crash which is with the openfoam5, version "0-1" package for Ubuntu 16.04:
I think the crash is caused by the same issue reported here:
This issue was resolved on 15 August 2017:
The openfoam5 pack for Ubuntu was patched on 30 October 2017, so includes this fix; pack version is "20171030"
The Ubuntu version (on AWS / CFD Direct from the cloud, or anywhere else) can be updated by entering the following in the terminal (ignore titles with #)
# Add repository and key
sudo add-apt-repository http://dl.openfoam.org/ubuntu
sudo sh -c "wget -O - http://dl.openfoam.org/gpg.key | apt-key add -"
# Update and upgrade the package
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install --only-upgrade openfoam5
# Check the update package is installed
apt-cache policy openfoam5
