You have been subscribed to a public bug:

I had to reinstall Eucalyptus from the ground up several times already.
After some time with little to no activity (besides running euca-
describe-images and logging in the admin interface), it refuses new
actions through the interface with:

 $ euca-describe-images
Warning: failed to parse error message from AWS: <unknown>:1:0: syntax error
EC2ResponseError: 403 Forbidden
Failure: 403 Forbidden

This same command with exactly the same settings was working just moments before.

Then, if I try to download a new credentials zip file from the admin
interface, I get back an empty file (0 bytes).

Once this situation is in place, restarting it doesn't help.  I have to
kill the whole installation, purging packages, configuration, databases,
etc, and reinstalling everything again.  From then on, it will start
working again for a short period, and then the problem starts again.
