What's your network architecture looks like? is it the default and no in between middle boxes like a Third-party Vendor Firewall or AWS Network Firewall that can block traffic aside from ICMP? If it is SOS, I recommend reaching out to AWS Support in this case and initiate a live contact (chat/call).
