Subject: "Illegal instruction" error on

I have [linux-gnu 64-bit AVX-autoconf] running
on Kali 4.0.0. (x86_64).

When I try to run a command:

john --wordlist=/passwords.txt --rules --stdout > output.txt

I get "Illegal instruction" error.

I researched for hours last night and read FAQ and was still unable to
resolve the issue. Could someone provide me some guidance as to how I can
troubleshoot this error and fix it?
