This billboard shows that none of your ntp servers are reachable from your EC2
instance.  Try turning off all of the crypto configuration.  You will want to make
things operate with a simple configuration first and then add features to a
working system.  Use just the suggested server:

pool pool.ntp.org

As your only one and not use the Amazon pool to start.  If it works and the
associations look good, then there is something incorrect on the EC2 side.

NTP is not working on this instance.  Get it to syncronize first and then ask
your questions/
