Formula mongodb has been removed from homebrew-core. 

Luckily, the team of mongodb is managing a custom Homebrew tap. You can just simply uninstall the former mongodb and reinstall the new one from the new tap.

brew services stop mongodb

brew uninstall mongodb

brew tap mongodb/brew

brew install mongodb-community

brew services start mongodb-community
