Summary0006346: AWS AMI User Date Does Not Run


User Data (bash scripts) attached to the official AWS Kali AMI do not run.

It appears the AMI is not cleaned properly before the Image is taken and registered.

Running the following to clean/remove first run user data remediates the issue before taking an image for an AMI.

rm -rf /var/lib/cloud/*
cloud-init clean

I have tested and confirmed this by launching a new official Kali instance, running these commands, taking my own AMI of the instance then launching it with user data.

Steps To Reproduce

Launch AMI Kali Linux 2020.1a with User Data attached
