Most likely, another instance of upsd is already running. You need to kill
that one first, before starting a new one.

The output of 'netstat -pan --inet --inet6 | grep 3493' may help to
determine if the port is already claimed.

If you're using the development version (which you do) this can be
configured in upsd.conf through the LISTEN directive (see 'man 5
upsd.conf' for the syntax).
