I have done all the steps as described in this guide and confirmed that it works fine.
Note that since naciscdn.org is down, I have replaced the relevant part of external-data.yml with the following description.

I would like to use the Positoron style for my basemap. I downloaded the style sheet from here and rewrote /usr/local/etc/renderd.conf.

[renderd]
num_threads=8
tile_dir=/var/lib/mod_tile
stats_file=/var/run/renderd/renderd.stats

[mapnik]
plugins_dir=/usr/lib/mapnik/3.0/input
font_dir=/usr/share/fonts/truetype
font_dir_recurse=1

[ajt]
URI=/hot/
TILEDIR=/var/lib/mod_tile
XML=/home/ubuntu/basemap-styles/cartocss/web-styles/positron.tm2/project.xml
HOST=localhost
TILESIZE=256

When I start the renderd daemon and try to access http://myhost/hot/0/0/0.png, I just get a gray image and it does not render correctly.
When I try to access the site again after some time has passed, I just get a gray image.
There are no errors in the renderd daemon log.
In the /var/lib/mod_tile/ajt/ directory, a .meta file has been created.

renderd[58068]: DEBUG: Got incoming connection, fd 5, number 1
renderd[58068]: DEBUG: Got incoming request with protocol version 2

renderd[58068]: DEBUG: Sending render cmd(3 ajt 0/0/0) with protocol version 2 to fd 5
renderd[58068]: DEBUG: Connection 0, fd 5 closed, now 0 left

Please let me know what action I have to take in order to use Positoron style.

I'd be surprised if you can use that as a "drop in replacement" like that. Someone did ask about it over at https://github.com/CartoDB/basemap-styles/issues/22 a while back but didn't get an answer.
