Sounds like you are using the latest release for the cloud, the version that goes with report server is Version: 2.51.4885.1423 64-bit (October 2017)

To find the correct version of the desktop I always got to the report server webportal and use the download link as below.

@Greg_Deckler hi yes, unfortunately i can never find the link for it, do you know where to download it from, its not obvious from the RS page or the deskop page

 

previously also it wasn't  problem to create a dashboard in the default destop app for RS

As I recall, you go to the download link for the latest Report Server version and hit download and THEN it gives you the option to download the Desktop RS version. Not super intuitive.
