Helm and Tiller install

Sorry if this has been asked before but I can’t seem to find it here. I’m new to Rancher and I’m just trying to get an initial install going following the directions for “Installing Rancher on a Kubernetes Cluster” using RKE.

When I get to the part about helm init I get failures:
Adding stable repo with URL: https://kubernetes-charts.storage.googleapis.com
Error: error initializing: Looks like “xxxxxxxxx” is not a valid chart repository or cannot be reached: Get xxxxxxxxx/index.yaml: read tcp> read: connection reset by peer

However I can reach that location on both 80 and 443.

I found a workaround:
cat << EOF >> ~/.helm/repository/repositories.yaml
apiVersion: v1

  • caFile: “”
    cache: ~/.helm/repository/cache/stable-index.yaml
    certFile: “”
    keyFile: “”
    name: stable
    password: “”
    url:see URL above
    username: “”
  • caFile: “”
    cache: ~/.helm/repository/cache/local-index.yaml
    certFile: “”
    keyFile: “”
    name: local
    password: “”
    username: “”

which seemed to work, however we eventually get this state:
tiller-deploy-67cd845dff-qdr8q 0/1 ErrImagePull 0 5h33

for reference:
