Access denied or directory not found. Either you don't have permissions for this directory or the directory does not exist. Try calling ListDirectories and check your permissions.

HTTP Status Code: 403


Indicates a problem that must be resolved by Amazon Web Services. This might be a transient error in which case you can retry your request until it succeeds. Otherwise, go to the AWS Service Health Dashboard site to see if there are any operational issues with the service.

HTTP Status Code: 500


Indicates that the provided ARN value is not valid.

HTTP Status Code: 400


Indicates that limits are exceeded. See Limits for more information.

HTTP Status Code: 400


The specified resource could not be found.

HTTP Status Code: 404


Occurs when a conflict with a previous successful write is detected. For example, if a write operation occurs on an object and then an attempt is made to read the object using “SERIALIZABLE” consistency, this exception may result. This generally occurs when the previous write did not have time to propagate to the host serving the current request. A retry (with appropriate backoff logic) is the recommended response to this exception.

HTTP Status Code: 409


The object could not be deleted because links still exist. Remove the links and then try the operation again.

HTTP Status Code: 400


Indicates that your request is malformed in some manner. See the exception message.

HTTP Status Code: 400
