AMP is stuck in nightly maintenance mode. The log file (/var/cron_stopped_maintenance) shows a error such as the following: 

DBI connect('dbname=airwave','airwave',...) failed: FATAL: database is not accepting comm 
ands to avoid wraparound data loss in database "postgres" 
HINT: Stop the postmaster and use a standalone backend to vacuum database "postgres".
