Issues installing Istio on a DO cluster


I’m fairly new to the Kubernetes world and I am exploring Istio as a service mesh option for our future clusters. I’m trying just to experiment with the installation process on a new managed kubernetes cluster on DigitalOcean.

I’m following the steps to install via Helm charts, but I am failing on the last step, which is the install itself. I made sure to follow all steps and always verifying that everything is created properly. The last step is

helm install install/kubernetes/helm/istio --name istio --namespace istio-system

Which results in the following error

Error: no kind "Job" is registered for version "batch/v1" in scheme ""

Could be that something is missing in the cluster itself, but any help on pointing me towards the right direction would be much appreciated.

I’m attempting to install version 1.3.4. Kubernetes version is 1.15.5. Helm version is 2.16.0-rc.2.
