on Debian/Ubuntu, ejabberd is automatically started upon installation,

I guess your ejabberd is already running, when I call "ejabberdctl live"
in that situation I get a crash as well.

Use "/etc/init.d/ejabberd start|stop|restart" or call
"service ejabberd start|stop|restart" on your system.

As for that version - that is indeed quite old.
I'd suggest to use Debian Jessie with Backports, or a newer Ubuntu
Release, or use the repository from https://jabber.at/en/apt-repository
(preferrably in that order ;) )
