lightsail Create instance from snapshot failing due to blueprint unavailable


I'm attempting to restore a snapshot from my lightsail ubuntu instance into another region, and am getting this error message. My ubuntu image was created a long time ago ( when 16_04 was current ), and has been updated regularly and is currently running ubuntu 22.04. How can I fix this without rebuilding from scratch ?

Sorry for your inconvenience. Unfortunately Ubuntu 16_04_01 is not available in ca-central-1 region, hence this snapshot can not be used to create a new instance in ca-central-1.

  • After upgrading the underlying OS instance on LightSail, is it possible to change or update the blueprint ?
