Error installing MathJax to AWS Lambda

Hi everyone,

Just curious if anyone has tried to install the PB-Mathjax to AWS Lambda in a while. I’m in over my head, but I thought I had done everything I needed to do:

  • I signed up for AWS,
  • Created a new user with the proper IAM permissions (named mine mathjax),
  • Configured the AWS CloudShell command line interface,
  • Copied the files from the github repo,
  • Went to the newly created pb-mathjax dir
  • ran the suggested command.

claudia create --handler lambda.handler --deploy-proxy-api --region us-east-2 --timeout 15 --memory 256 --profile mathjax

Here’s the error output I received:

Can anyone help me read the error message here?
