Filebeat setup error message

I am getting below error with file beat setup
sudo filebeat setup gives

"Exiting: 1 error: Error checking if xpack is available: 500 Internal Server Error: {"error":{"root_cause":[{"type":"security_exception","reason":"Unexpected exception indices:admin/get"}],"type":"security_exception","reason":"Unexpected exception indices:admin/get"},"status":500}"
appreciate if someone can assist

filebeat.yml has this set but its not helping
xpack.monitoring.enabled: false


It sounds like that your cluster is protected. So you probably need to enter your credentials in the filebeat configuration?

I'm moving your question to #beats:filebeat

do you mean in filebeat.yml the elastic stack authentication details, if so i had already set it up?
even then its not working
