Ask questionsError: could not find a ready tiller pod

I'm bringing up Kubernetes on my Mac under minikube and xhyve, with the eye towards using Kubernetic to manage the whole thing. I installed helm from homebrew as brew install kubernetes-helm.

When I do pretty much any Helm command, I get this error message:

$ helm status
Error: could not find a ready tiller pod

which seems pretty fundamental of a problem. I am not sure how to proceed from here, suggestions for debugging or component installation welcomed. However the upgrade seems to work:

$ helm init --upgrade
$HELM_HOME has been configured at /Users/emv/.helm.

Tiller (the helm server side component) has been upgraded to the current version.
Happy Helming!

For me, my installation was missing tiller service account. On istio installation folder, running this solved my issue.

kubectl apply -f install/kubernetes/helm/helm-service-account.yaml   
helm init --service-account tiller
useful!
