Everything works to here.
stack --version
Version 1.6.1, Git revision f25811329bbc40b0c21053a8160c56f923e1201b (5435 commits) i386 hpack-0.20.0

stack upgrade
zsh: bus error (core dumped)  stack upgrade

Hoping for a miracle:

stack install
Downloading lts-11.6 build plan ...zsh: bus error (core dumped)  stack

oops!  No miracle.

Thanks for helping.
