stalled install 0.92rc1

When I run the install routine for the 0.92rc1 version of SC, it aborts with the following error message:
        ImportError: No module named starcluster

I'm using the following AMI for a single server, from which I would then launch a cluster:

Full output from the command "sudo easy_install StarCluster" from this cloud server is appended below.

I've been using SC for the last year and have my setup and run scripts finely tuned for initiating and managing specific cluster configurations. Between May 15 and June 15 I ran three separate clusters (from 48 to 96 cores) with no problems whatsoever.

Here are the first several upstream script commands ( I run to setup a new cloud server:


        apt-get -y update
        apt-get -y install libx11-dev
        apt-get -y install xvfb
        apt-get -y install python-setuptools
        #--- For StarCluster ----------------------
        apt-get -y install python-crypto
        apt-get -y install python-paramiko
        #--- For running python analysis/plotting scripts ----------
        # apt-get -y install gfortran
        # apt-get -y install python-numpy
        # apt-get -y install python-matplotlib

        easy_install StarCluster
        . . . . . .

This script file is called by the command "sudo bash"

Error output message from 'easy_install StarCluster' is the same whether it is invoked within this script or directly called from the command line as: 'sudo easy_install StarCluster'

Thanks for any light you may be able to shed on this issue,
