I ran across this when testing Ubuntu 24.04 Noble Numbat on an AWS instance without a public IPv4 address.

Ubuntu 24.04 Noble Numbat does not have the awscli package that Ubuntu 22.04 Jammy Jellyfish and earlier versions of Ubuntu had. Ubuntu 24.04 Noble Numbat instead supplies a snap aws-cli package but this cannot be installed on an instance without a Public IPv4 address.

I have seen comments to the contrary but in my opinion this is an Ubuntu issue as well as an AWS issue as long as they both claim to support IPv6.

Snap is not alone as github still does not support IPv6.

I started working with AWS instances without a Public IPv4 address when AWS announced they would start charging for them. I continue to be amazed at how many issues I discover with an instance without a Public IPv4 address. AWS has been charging for a Public IPv4 address for months now.
