> the nut client ( upsc ) is trying to use the NSS-based SSL backend of your OS (in order to avoid sending passwords in clear text to the UPS) but the backend is not initialized yet. look for the docs appropriate for your distro in order to find out how to create the database used by NSS

Correct, the Debian and Ubuntu packages use the NSS-based SSL backend, but the message is spurious (upsc does not send passwords) and can be ignored.

To be honest, I thought we had fixed this a while ago (NUT 2.7.1), but I guess it popped back up again: https://github.com/networkupstools/nut/issues/30
