is the file name "user-info" correct? I ask because the official page uses user-data instead:
https://docs.aws.amazon.com/AWSEC2/latest/UserGuide/amazon-linux-2-virtual-machine.html#amazon-linux-2-virtual-machine-prepare

But I had trouble getting seed.iso based on the info from that page to work, and init.iso worked like a charm.
