Not sure why, but when trying to create an instance the build fails with
not being able to access marketplace image.

API: ec2:RunInstances Not authorized for images: [ami-03c4e540f2256d223]

Currently subscribed to the CENTOS 7 AMI with updates.

>From Amazon:
This ami-03c4e540f2256d223 may be depreciated by the provider if it is not
letting you to launch new instances from it, means it is no longer
You would need to find the latest AMI version from the marketplace on the
page where you begin configuration or I would suggest contact the
marketplace provider support directly, unfortunately we do not have insight
in those images, only the provider.

This way they'll update the below mappings in the CloudFormation template
with the relevant AMI for us-west-2 region for you.

"AWSRegionArch2AMI": {
            "us-east-1": {
                "HVM64": "ami-0e683f9e59dd2838c"
            "us-west-2": {
                "HVM64": "ami-03c4e540f2256d223"
            "us-west-1": {
                "HVM64": "ami-08eaa393abc9e7ee2"

Please advise.
