Installing AMET on Amazon EC2 Account

Has anyone been able to install/run AMET on Amazon EC2 account? I wasn’t able to install R on my amazon ec2 account, so I am not able to use the AMET tool. Is possible to run the AMET tool with R installed on a local computer? Alternatively, is there a workaround to installing R on Amazon ec2 account?

I have instructions for installing R on an EC2 instance with the Ubuntu OS here:

It doesn’t load all of the packages required for AMET, but it should get you started.
