What's Causing This Error

This error message indicates an issue with the network connectivity to the DynamoDB service. Specifically, it means that a socket operation was attempted on an unreachable network. For example, this can happen if the network connection to the DynamoDB service is down or a firewall or routing issue prevents the connection from being established.

Solution: Here's How To Resolve It

To solve this error, check the network connectivity to the DynamoDB service and ensure it is available and accessible. You can try to ping or telnet the service endpoint to check if you can reach the service.

ping -c 4 dynamodb.us-west-2.amazonaws.com

You can also try to switch to a different network or use a VPN to connect to the service.

Additionally, ensure that the security groups and firewalls allow the connection to the service endpoint.
