Unable to connect to EC2 instance via aws website


I started my EC2 instance (Ubuntu 18) yesterday without any key pair. I want to connect the instance via aws website. But when I click 'connect' button it gives me 'There was a problem connecting to your instance Log in failed. If this instance has just started up, wait a few minutes and try again. Otherwise, ensure the instance is running on an AMI that supports EC2 Instance Connect.'

Looks like you need to install EC2 Instance Connect for that version of the OS. See: Set up EC2 Instance Connect, Task 2. Also, review your security group and make sure you have followed Task 1.

  • It's task 2. Ubuntu 18 need to install EC2 Instance Connect manually.
