Can't make remote host to work properly

I'm having trouble setting up connection to remote host (Ubuntu 16.04 on AWS from Windows 10 machine with Wing IDE 6.0.10-1).Wing IDE installs agent, but after i try to test connection this happens: Connecting to host id AWS failed.

The remote agent was not found. Do you want to install it now?

Output received:

There is indeed no "" in winghome on remote host.

It looks like the install is failing for some reason.  I've seen other reports from people using AWS that this happens, although we're not sure yet why.  Try installing manually as described here:

We've fixed bugs since this that should solve this installation problem.
