from wehewehe.org: "interj. and vi. Oh! Oh dear! Oh boy! Alas! Too bad! Goodness! (Much used to express wonder, fear, scorn, pity, affection; see ex., huʻahuʻa 1, Gram. 12.) To groan, moan, grieve, bewail. Auē nohoʻi ē! Goodness! Alas! Oh! Auē kākou! Alas for us! Woe betide us! Auē hoʻi au! Woe is me! Auē! Nānā aku ʻoe iā Lei mā! Say! You should see Lei and the others! E auē ana i ke aloha keiki, grieving for love of the child."

seems good to me. I have heard both depending on the situation. Now whether or not the duolingo program will recognize it as correct when typed in is another story.

Not just Oh. More like Oh, my. Oh, me. Oh, dear. Etc.

I donʻt think "shame" is quite the meaning. That would be hilahila, although I can certainly imagine saying, "Auē. Hilahila."
