Summary0006067: The latest image(Kali Linux 2020.1) in AWS Marketplace can not be accessed via SSH
DescriptionI launched the EC2 instance with the latest image(Kali Linux 2020.1) in AWS Marketplace, but it can not be accessed via SSH.
Steps To Reproduce1. Select the us-east-1 region and launch the instance with AMI ami-08f8f5dbba23a784b.
2. Try to access the instance via SSH.

    $ ssh -A -i ~/.ssh/aws/maowang.pem ec2-user@3.94.117.43 -v

    OpenSSH_7.9p1, LibreSSL 2.7.3

3. Same error message in console log.

    See 'systemctl status systemd-modules-load.service' for details.

4. Mount the Kali EBS volume to recovery instance. The syslog errors indicated that the 'nvidia' driver, but there were no logs related to the SSH daemon.
