Reason: This can occur when your key pair is not converted properly or used the wrong key pair. If you enter the username wrong then also this error will occur.

Solution: First, load the key pair then directly click on save private key and use that key in launching the instance.  Use the username according to the AMI.

Amazon Linux: ec2-user

Ubuntu: ubuntu
