I use:

bin/magento sampledata:deploy

And while its working it finishes with "Killed"

./composer.json has been updated
Loading composer repositories with package information
Updating dependencies (including require-dev)

Any ideas as to what might be going wrong?

Your server did not have enough memory for composer and process was killed by OOM killer. Please enable swap with 2GB memory at list and rerun command.
