The original mail said:

| superseded the existing images . Images are available for download or
| immediate use on EC2 via publish AMI ids. Users who wish to update their
| existing installations can do so with:
| 'apt-get update && apt-get distupgrade && reboot'.

Those links were incorrect, which is probably what lead you to
ami-6844f569. That was a daily image from 20120401. Daily images are
cleaned on a "keep 5 most recent" basis. If you intended to use a daily
build, then you should make use of machine formated data in
to get the right AMI id.
If you were intending to use a released build (which will never be
expired), then the correct link is:
Note, also that:
* /query and /query2 data also contain 'release' information, so you can
use tools to get that data reliably.
* https://cloud-images.ubuntu.com/server/releases/oneiric/release/ will
always point you to the most current released image of the given
release (ie, 'release' rather than 'release-YYYYMMDD')
specifcally, the ami corresponding to the one you listed above is:
ami-2c32832d ap-northeast-1 ubuntu-oneiric-11.10-i386-server-20120401
Thank you for raising this issue.
