Thanks!  Report attached.

One observation:

"WARNING: I am unable to call script nut-journal to
read the NUT activity records in the systemd journal.
Either the nut-journal script is not available
or you do not have access to the journal
for system commands such as those of NUT.
Ask your system administrator to add your
account to the systemd-journal group.
When this is done, log out and then log in
and try again."

.... OR, you're not running systemd.  (Out, out, vile daemon.  You shall
not pass.)

It's a brand new UPS installed earlier this year.
