Cannot launch from template in AWS CLI?

0 votes

Working on scripting my first ever EC2 instance launch using the CLI, following the user guide here. I manually created a launch template using the console, and am trying to launch an instance from it using the directions provided, but continually get the following error:

erich@ip-172-31-69-124:~$ aws ec2 run-instances --launch-template LaunchTemplateId=lt-0a0d15f9401ca8442

aws: error: the following arguments are required: --image-id

You are using an older version of CLI that does not support --launch-template option.

$ aws ec2 --version

aws-cli/1.11.109 Python/2.6.9 Linux/4.1.17-22.30.amzn1.x86_64 botocore/1.7.20

$ aws ec2 run-instances --launch-template

aws: error: argument --image-id is required

After upgrading:

$ sudo pip install awscli --upgrade

$ aws ec2 --version aws-cli/1.14.65 Python/2.6.9 Linux/4.1.17-22.30.amzn1.x86_64 botocore/1.9.18 $

aws ec2 run-instances --launch-template

aws: error: argument --launch-template: expected one argument

$ aws ec2 run-instances help [--launch-template <value>]
