After a year or two with Lightsail, my site was down today


In the Lightsail console, it shows Unknown for status and trying to stop it doesn't seem to be working. The AWS dashboard shows Lightsail services are all green. Yeah, I don't think so. Trying to stop it again I get an Error dialog saying cannot stop an instance in transition!?!?!?!!?!?!?!?!!!?!!?!??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

I might be headed back to Linode. This is service from a multi-billion dollar company?

I used my snapshot, had to update a few files that the super smart cloud config blindly overwrites in its wisdom.
