"it is presumed that some trouble occurred"

For what it's worth, I concur with that interpretation.

What is the first stage engine exactly? There was talk of it using an ablative nozzle, so do hot fire tests require replacing the nozzle?

Not sure if the engine is ablative, but there is certainly no liquid cooling!

Some screen grabs. Looks like a combustion chamber failure.

From the height though one might guess a chamber injector header failure since it comes out sideways? Unlikely the top of the combustion chamber came undone though. The nozzle is uncooled, but if the chamber is regen cooled or an expander cycle, then that pipework might be suspect as well.

Interstellar Technologies Continues Works on the Development of Its Own Rocket Despite MOMO-2 Launch Failure

[...]

“We will begin the next launch as soon as we are ready. We were able to launch MOMO-2 within less than a year after MOMO-1. The launch interval of MOMO-3 and MOMO-2 will be shorter,” Inagawa said.

Are they going to crowdfund MOMO-3?

Interstellar Technologies is drawing on technology from its Momo sounding rocket, pictured here, as it develops an orbital rocket to send 100 kilogram payloads into 500 kilogram sun synchronous orbits. The company is drawing on Momo components, control algorithms and operations expertise for its orbital rocket, tentatively called Zero.

At current exchange rate. It is the equivalent of $90493.50 USD or 79043.81 Euros.  ;D
