That was the thought, but I mistakenly thought that there was a NUT package in wheezy-backports. https://packages.debian.org/search?suite=wheezy-backports&keywords=nut-server does not list anything. (Debian only does backports by request, and that could take a while - especially for something in oldoldstable.)

Agreed that upgrading to jessie or stretch would work.

If you can install build-essential and the NUT build-deps, you could build a newer version from source.

here is some info on that process: http://lists.alioth.debian.org/pipermail/nut-upsuser/2016-October/010389.html

In your case, you probably don't need the libusb-1.0 branch snapshot, so you could just use a NUT tarball from the downloads page: http://networkupstools.org/download.html#_stable_tree_2_7
