Metrics-server with CrashLoopBackOff

this is a new rke install.

I am just thinking if this is happening because of a secure/nonsecure certificate. Can anyone please give me some light on this . and what to check to see why it’s failing?

Everything seems ok but metric-server is in CrashLookBackOff

kubectl get pods metrics-server-68f5f9b7df-v4f7v -n kube-system
NAME READY STATUS RESTARTS AGE
metrics-server-68f5f9b7df-v4f7v 0/1 CrashLoopBackOff 71 3h25m

n the logs, I only see this

kubectl logs  metrics-server-68f5f9b7df-v4f7v -n kube-system
I0816 10:39:58.263020       1 secure_serving.go:116] Serving securely on [::]:4443
