Hi James, On opensuse, man exec says
  exec [command [argument ...]]
  ... If command is found, but it is not an executable utility,
      the exit status shall be 126.

Check the man exec on Ubuntu, but it looks like an owner/permissions 
problem. For me /sbin/upssched-cmd.sh should have permissions -rwxr--r-- 
and owner upsd:daemon .

Please don't leave this 777 in place - it's too dangerous :-)  Cheers,
