I've installed the mentioned packages and LB event still doesn't get

Just to make sure, if values displayed with upsc are set to these values
battery.charge: 75
battery.charge.low: 30
battery.charge.warning: 30

Then the driver should report LB when battery.charge is below
battery.charge.low (30)? What does battery.charge.warning have to do here?
