MATLAB crashes with only two lines in crash dump stack trace

Hello!
I am trying to get MATLAB to run on a High-performance computing system (Slurm, if that matters) but MATLAB crashes when trying to start the process. I am using the -batch option, and I am trying to start a parallel pool within the process, if any of that matters.
I had been having some other issues with the parallel pool initialization, and I followed some instructions that said to delete the ~/.matlab/R2020a folder, as some files were corrupted in there and the post said that MATLAB would automatically regenerate this folder, so it may be possible this error originates from this change, but I am not at all sure.
I am rather new to debugging these types of problems in MATLAB, so I am having a hard time understanding the crash dump, as there are only the two lines in the stack trace, and I'm not sure what "unknown-module" could be referring to... I would assume it is my script, but I do not know what part of the script would be causing the crash...
Any suggestions for how to read these types of files or for what might be causing this problem?
Here's the crash dump:

I just realized that I am actually getting different crash stack traces for each process I try to run...
Here is another dump I get, but there are more if they might be more helpful in tracking this problem down.

Your quickest path to success is to read the FAQ and do what it says:
Trust me on that. If you wait on Answers you may wait days or probably never even get an answer that solves it.
Also, if you were presented with a screen when it crashed, or when you restarted MATLAB to send the crash report into Mathworks, do so. An actual live person will read it and give you a response.
If not, feel free to call them.
