Kibana.5.2.1 x-pack plugin installation failure

I am using home-brew to install ELK stack with x-pack on my local OS X laptop. Earlier I was running 5.1.2 version without any issues. After upgrading ES, Kibana, LogStash to 5.2 version, X-Pack plugin installation on kibana is failing which is causing not to load kibana UI at http://localhost:5601/

I believe the issue is happening because of version mismatch between ES and Kibana. home-brew installed 5.2.2 version of ES and 5.2.1 version of Kibana. Hence, x-pack plugin installation on kibana is throwing an error. Kibana dashboard is working back after switched back to back 5.1.2 version of ES and Kibana. upgrade to 5.2 should be on hold until home-brew updates kibana to 5.2.2 release.

brew switch elasticsearch 5.1.2
/brew switch kibana 5.1.2

I have the same problem but I am unable to revert to 5.1 as I do not have it installed. Is there another way to revert or do I have to wait for this to be resolved in order to use X-Pack at all with kibana?

No, this isn't the issue. The issue is with the Kibana formula. I opened https://github.com/Homebrew/homebrew-core/pull/11360.

This is fixed now. You should: brew remove kibana && brew update && brew install kibana to pick up the fix.
