The reason why wp-config.php fails to upload is a problem with the permission settings of the files and directories located in Lightsail.
The error is due to the fact that the user using FTP does not have permission to update the file.
Try the following command in Lightsail.

sudo chmod 775 -R /opt/bitnami/app/wordpress/htdocs
sudo usermod -aG daemon ftp-user-name

Is the database the one running inside Lightsail?
Are you externally hosted using RDS or similar?
Also, have you set up the correct DB connection information in wp-config.php?
