Thanks for the log!

Following lines from 58-62 seems to be the trigger

2014-08-28 20:16:49 Storing complete log in /home/ubuntu/.pip/pip.log

and then later this is the error:

2014-08-28 20:16:49 ++ echo /usr/local/bin/oslo-rootwrap
2014-08-28 20:16:49 + CINDER_ROOTWRAP=/usr/local/bin/oslo-rootwrap

2014-08-28 20:16:49 + die 176 'No suitable rootwrap found.'

Does downloading oslo.rootwrap package help?

sudo pip install oslo.rootwrap

I executed the command you mentioned and the out is
