Filebeat 7.4.1 PODs of k8s daemonset constantly crash

I'm trying to use filebeat in my k8s cluster to forward logs to a dedicated self-hosted elasticsearch instance.
Following the documentation here ( https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/filebeat/current/running-on-kubernetes.html ) I deployed the necessary k8s resources into my kube-system namespace.

The deployed PODs on the k8s nodes constantly CrashLoopBackOff and this is what I get from one of them and I have no clue what the problem is :

$ kubectl -n kube-system logs filebeat-72qph
