I created a new Access Key and configured that in the AWS CLI with aws configure. It created the .ini file in ~/.aws/config. When I run aws s3 ls it gives:

A client error (InvalidAccessKeyId) occurred when calling the ListBuckets operation: The AWS Access Key Id you provided does not exist in our records.

AmazonS3FullAccess policy is also attached to the user. How to fix this?

It might be occurring that you just have the old keys transported via env variables (bash_profile) and since the env variables have higher precedence over credential files it's giving the error:

 "the access key id does not exist".

Remove the old keys from the bash_profile and you'd be good to go.
