Hi Fabian,

Sorry to hear you're having issues. This error is most likely related to
the version of boto you're using. My guess is that boto 2.0* is
installed and this is the problem. I'm releasing a new version soon that
is compatible with the boto 2.0* releases.

StarCluster 0.91 was developed against boto 1.9b so you'll probably want
to try installing it and see if it fixes the issue. Just for drill would
you mind sending me the output of the following command:

$ python -c "import boto; print boto.Version"

Again, if it doesn't say 1.9b then installing boto 1.9b will likely fix
the problem for now.

Also, how did you install StarCluster? Did you use easy-install, pip,
virtualenv, portage, or just run python install?

BTW, I've cc'd the StarCluster mailing list on this message in case
others run into a similar problem. Please consider joining the mailing
list for future questions:

Thanks for your interest in StarCluster,
