redis-cli unix socket - import rcmd failing


I am using redis server 3.0.6 on ubuntu 16.04 desktop. Installed using

apt-get install redis-server

It was working fine for a long time. Today, when I tried to import a rcmd file using unix socket in redis-cli I am getting out of memory error.

$ sudo redis-cli -s /run/redis/redis.sock  < a1.rcmd
Error: Out of memory

a1.rcmd contents:

SET Api:Server:Name "server1"

/etc/redis/redis.conf was confiured with /run/redis/redis.sock. All other configurations are default.

GET, SET commands with unix socket option are working fine.

If I run without unix socket, the redis-cli < a1.rcmd command is working fine.

What causes this error?

Will upgrade to latest version of redis resolve this? I dont see apt-get way to install latest redis version 5.

Any help would be really appreciated.

** EDIT **

Some more inputs and GDB logs.
