It's impossible to exit nano under Lightsail. Typing Ctrl+X or Ctrl+Shift+X simply types an X on the screen.
In fact, typing Ctrl+ anything just types the letter, making nano effectively useless.
How are you connected to your server? Are you running an SSH connection from your server terminal or are you using a third-party program?
I'm using Amazon Lightsail's Connect Using SSH button which opens a terminal window in the browser.
Connecting from a regular Linux console via SSH is no problem, it's just on the virtual console -- which is convenient to use if I'm away from the office.
Could you contact Amazon with this issue? It seems due to the Ctrl button key binding. Did you try from another machine as well?
