Metricbeat Kubernetes module - all events have failures but no ERROR message in logs

I am using stable/metricbeat Helm Chart for installing metricbeat on Kubernetes cluster

NAME                    CHART VERSION   APP VERSION     DESCRIPTION
stable/metricbeat       1.7.0           6.7.0           A Helm chart to collect Kubernetes logs with metricbeat

Some of the values are overridden by values file:

daemonset:
  overrideConfig:
    ...
    kubernetes:
      config:
        - module: kubernetes
          metricsets:
            - node
            - system
            - pod
            - container
            - volume
          period: 10s
          host: ${NODE_NAME}
          hosts: ["https://${HOSTNAME}:10250"]
          bearer_token_file: /var/run/secrets/kubernetes.io/serviceaccount/token
          ssl.certificate_authorities:
          - /var/run/secrets/kubernetes.io/serviceaccount/ca.crt

This setup works correctly to get system metrics to all the way to Kibana. None of the Kubernetes related fields are forwarded.

Looking at metricbeat logs I can see there are failed events, but there are no "ERROR" messages in logs.

In particular

"pod":{"events":2,"failures":2}

For reference if I go directly to kubelet API (https://${HOSTNAME}:10250/metrics or metrics/cadvisor) all metrics are retrieved properly.

How can I debug this or get more accurate error information? What can be the root cause?
