[Nut-upsuser] Can't get latest version for Raspberry Pi

Thanks Charles,
    I had no idea what a wheezy or a Jessie was until I followed your link - thanks for that. I'm surprised I hadn't come across that link before.

All of my investigations do point to the fact I have a wheezy. I think it's time for a fresh install as the Pi is pretty much doing nothing other than monitoring the UPS and a few other minor tasks. I get the impression a dist-upgrade might get me to where I want to be but it may be more straightforward to format the SD card and start again making sure I backup my nut configuration files first of course!

It looks like you have Raspbian wheezy (Debian 7.x). NUT 2.7.2 is included in Raspbian jessie (Debian 8.x).

I'm not sure if the Raspbian maintainers recommend doing "apt-get dist-upgrade", or if they would suggest that you start from a fresh install image, but the dist-upgrade would probably take quite a while.
