Hi Torstein,

You will need to email AWS support or use the linked form from here
and have them lift this restriction on your account.

The cap applies to all instances under one AWS account-- I would check if there are any orphaned nodes or clusters running via the console. If not, you are right to be suspicious, as I believe the default cap is 20. Also, I think there are two separate caps-- one for spot instances and one for regular instances (but I could be wrong about that).
