The root cause of this error is in Vagrant itself.

We fixed it in Engine Yard Local 1.0. However, if it resurfaces, a simple restart corrects the error.

For those that are running into the following error after running $ ey-local up, the solution is to just run $ ey-local up one more time and everything should work great. We are working on getting it fixed in the next few days so until day please use the above solution. Thanks for your patience and enjoy!

This is still an issue but the second ey-local up will work. The error above when calling "import" is a VirtualBox bug.
