That 13.04 AMI should be removed. All it does is cause confusion.

I don't recall seeing any network errors, but I do regularly install R on top of starcluster AMIs. I have gotten errors trying to update packages, I'm guessing because the last ubuntu release that there's starcluster AMIs (13.04) for is no longer supported by ubuntu. So, I use the AMI for ubuntu 12.04 as my starting point.
Attached is a script that I run which installs R and the various packages that I use. I then image the instance to a new AMI so that I don't need to repeat the process ever time a node comes online.
Not entirely clear if the problem you're getting is one I've hit, but sending along my script in case it happens to help.

Apologies for this rather novice question. I have finally been able to get
star cluster installed and running after firefighting with different AMI's
and thing. But now I am stuck with this issue where I need to install R and
when i do apt-get, the networks seems to be dead. Not even ping works (just
hangs any ip and dies with 'failed connection timeout' ) . Must be
something obvious I haven't or have done with my config setting. Could you
please let me know what diagnostics could I perform?
