Unable to clone new instance from snapshot.

For the last couple of days I've been trying to clone an instance from a snapshot. I've attempted several different snapshots from different instances but all I get is the message:

Oops! Something unexpected happened

with an invitation to try again. And try try try again I have!

Any ideas?

Sorry about that. Alon is

Sorry about that. Alon is coming back from the weekend and will hopefully figure out what's going on.

Deployed a fix

I went over the logs and it seems we have a race-condition with AWS. I deployed a temporary fix until we refactor the code to handle snapshot cloning in the background.

Could you try again and report back if you still have issues.

Working now.
