It's been working ok. Only when I open the mentioned file it exits

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

Open blender and open metal material.blend that's all.
Based on the default startup or an attached .blend file (as simple as possible).

It works for me, please try to go to File and Load Factory Settings. Then try again to open the file

I can't reproduce this either. I'm guessing that because you seems to be sitting on a LTS release (that is from 2016), that your GPU drivers are outdated that is probably what is causing the issue.

Can you see if you crash when you use blender-softwaregl to start blender?

Additionally what is the output of glxinfo | grep OpenGL?
