Can't initialize helm on Microk8s, tiller image not being pulled due to errors

I am using Microk8s and after performing microk8s enable helm helm3 I did microk8s helm init so it could initialize and after that I would be able to install some helm charts I need for my application.

The init does not perform because the tiller pod keeps getting an error when performing the image pull, here is the configuration for that pod:

Can anyone help me out here?

Do you still need helm2? I don’t think that tiller image is still in that registry.
Helm2 is no longer supported.
