To test a overpass-api install, I have selected Belgium extract
file timestamp is sep 16 12:24 (UTC+2)

I populate the database with /usr/local/bin/

it failed with this message
Reading XML file ...terminate called after throwing an instance of
what(): std::bad_alloc

I reduced the problem to this (with or without --meta)
$ cat belgium-latest.osm | update_database

I do not know if it's a bug in update_database binary
or if it's an error in the geofabrik file (in this case,
a better error message could be usefull)

I keep geofabrik file if needed to help.
