No. Just run the driver in debug mode and you'll see what you have to do
to start it again. Previously, the belkin-hid driver would only match
the vendorid, but since there are also Belkin USB devices that are not
an UPS, we included the productid in this match too. The productid 1100
was added after we released nut-2.2.0, so you need to specify this in
either 'ups.conf'

	driver = usbhid-ups
	port = auto
	productid = 1100

or on the startup commandline

	/lib/nut/usbhid-ups -a belkin -x productid=1100

Apparently you've missed the note about this in the UPGRADING document
(where the usbhid-ups was still named newhidups):
