I've followed the ubuntu OpenStack setup pretty much to the letter, and I'm able to launch the test cirros instance perfectly fine, however when I try to launch "trusty-server-cloudimg-amd64-disk1.img" it throws an error:

Error during following call to agent: ['ovs-vsctl', '--timeout=120', 'del-port', 'br-int', u'qvob81c197a-49']

Since it has to do with ovs-vsctl, I figured it was something on the network node, but there's no mention of it in the openvswitch log files on the network node.

I managed to get it launched using the m1.small flavor instead of m1.tiny

I guess the ubuntu image has some sort of requirement for the root disk size. I can live with that, but I'm just curious of the error.

Try restart neutron-openvswitch-agent on this node.
Post /var/log/neutron/openvswitch-agent.log

Ubuntu needs at least 2GB (small flavor) to get booted up. You can also use minimal ubuntu or coreOS for tiny flavor. OVS is also present in compute node and it gets connected with neutron server using agent. So try troubleshooting there.
