I can't install Amplify on Cloud 9


Whilst new to the AWS environment, Amplify, and Cloud9, I didn't think I'd be running into issues this early on.

I'm trying to install amplify in a new Cloud 9 environment, but for some reason, get this error off the bat. Any guidance or direction pointing would be highly appreciated:

I had the same error in a t2.micro instance type (1GiB), but I solved creating a new Cloud9 environment in a t3.small instance type (2GiB).
