[ubuntu-uk] s3sync Stopped Working After Reboot

 Hi all,

 I run s3sync to do a backup from my web server to an AWS S3 bucket. 
 This runs once a week on a cron job and has done so for many many 

 I had to do a reboot on my server (VPS BTW, running 8,04 LTS) and now 
 s3sync no longer works.

 The command in my backup script is this:

   ruby s3sync.rb -r -v --ssl --delete /local/dir/ mybucket:somefolder

 I get an email after each backup to confirm, and the results were this:

   Connection timed out: execution expired
   99 retries left, sleeping for 30 seconds

 and this repeats for a long time...

 Just running a simple s3cmd command:

   s3cmd put mybucket:localfile.txt localfile.txt
   Broken pipe: Broken pipe

 Any ideas what's wrong?

 I emailled my VPS supplier and they said:

   "It looks like you're affected by clock issues. Please try running 
 the official Kernel for your operating system as described on our forums 
 at https://forums.openitc.co.uk/index.php/board,5.0.html"

 If all fails I might well reinstall my server anyway, as they now have 
 10,04 LTS images available. But it just seems weird how it was working 
 fine before the reboot.
