Beats / Kibana custom format isn't supported

I'm experimenting with metricbeats on a raspberry pi. Set up using the nightly build seems to work fine, and data is being indexed correctly.

However, loading the default dashboards and index pattern does not seem to work. Trying to discover any data from the metricbeat-* index results in the error "custom format isn't supported".

Error: [unsupported_operation_exception] custom format isn't supported

I'm running the cloud version of Elastic version 5.3.1 and corresponding Kibana version.

Any help on how to resolve this issue will be greatly appreciated.

Resolved. Turned out I was using an incompatible version of beats.
