That doesn't surprise; Linux Mint 19 is in active development and not released yet so various components of Linux Mint will not be ready for Linux Mint 19 yet.

Suggest https://etcher.io/ as alternative.

I'm running Mint 17 xfce, and I used the latest unetbootin (657) to make a Xubuntu 18.04 stick with 4 gb persistence, without problems.

I will update that U&L post, as the ppa is not good for 18.04./

An alternative in Ubuntu 18.04 is gnome-multi-writer. It is able to format a stick before writing, but cannot simply format (without writing anything). For that, use "Disks" (gnome-disk-utility). If the usb stick already contains a live Linux, it is a bit trickier: first, select "Format Disk" from the top right corner (NOT "Format partition" ), then select "Partitioning: No partitioning". And only then select "Format partition" , FAT, Next, Format.
