"Installing Security Updates.... " How long?

I've set up AWS/EC2 instance of tomcat appliance and it seems to be stuck in "Installing Security updates...." and I can't login to the server.  My turnkey server page tells me it's running at:


but... I can't login.

So far I've got 6 cents invested in this with no server running :(,.  I was able to download the VMDK and install it in VirtualBox on my machine no problem (but I didn't update it after the install).

Known issue with Tomcat/Java on Micro instances

There is a known upstream kernel issue related to java on micro instances. We're looking for a workaround, but in the meantime we will likely disable tomcat deployment on micro instances in the next Hub update so others aren't affected.

In the meantime, small and medium instance sizes are known to work without any issues.

Sorry about this...
