How to fix UnsatisfiableError when installing mamba?

I’m at step 6 in the EC2 guide where I’m trying to install mamba for the first time. After running

conda install -yq mamba

I get the following error:

Collecting package metadata (current_repodata.json): ...working... done
Solving environment: ...working... failed with initial frozen solve. Retrying with flexible solve.
Solving environment: ...working... failed with repodata from current_repodata.json, will retry with next repodata source.

UnsatisfiableError: The following specifications were found to be incompatible with each other:

Output in format: Requested package -> Available versionsThe following specifications were found to be incompatible with your system:

  - feature:/linux-64::__glibc==2.31=0
  - feature:|@/linux-64::__glibc==2.31=0

Your installed version is: 2.31

Note that strict channel priority may have removed packages required for satisfiability.

Does anyone know how I can fix this? My understanding is that I have version 2.31 of __glibc and that I need version 2.17 or greater (which I have).
