There was a temporary failure in name resolution, and after cokey rebooted everything was fine.

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Status check on the instance failed so after some digging and nothing coming up I just rebooted it and all fine. syslog just gave me snapd errors saying
Jul 12 14:53:00 ip-172-31-14-174 snapd[525163]: autorefresh.go:501: Cannot prepare auto-refresh change due to a permanent network error: persistent network error: Post https://api.snapcraft.io/v2/snaps/refresh: dial tcp: lookup api.snapcraft.io: Temporary failure in name resolution
So something messed up on the network interface somewhere.

Cloudwatch said it happened t 8pm last night. Exactly when England v Italy started so I'm thinking an overload on streaming sites

Wise choice, built in UPS, mobile backup data connection, inbuilt console, low rack space rent cost. Might have gone for something with dual sim myself, but I'm known to over-engineer so...
