I think your image is not uploaded properly. From CLI do glance index

and see the output. After this do glance show < image-id > and check whether your image is in the active state or not?

when i do glance index from CLI it failed to show index. Details reads like 401 Unauthorized. But the status of image from the dashboard shows that it is active. I am still not able to launch my first instance.

How did you added the image ? using CLI glance image-create or from Dashboard ?

I added with the CLI as follows: ./ -a admin -p openstack -t demo -C
