Hi Roger!
It's all about Debian 10 binary packages. I'm nothing change exclude
configuration files. Actually I found these units:
# systemctl list-unit-files | grep nut
nut-client.service   enabled
nut-driver.service   static
nut-monitor.service  enabled
nut-server.service   enabled

I does not change any of them. Simple, after boot, using
$ watch upsc MYUPS
what is give me "LB OL"
from another terminal I restart:
# systemctl restart nut-driver.service
after some seconds the status is changed to simply "OL".
Also for sure I was unplug 230V from UPS the system was shutdown after
about  15 min and at finish the UPS was switched off, as usually (I was
used a 12V/7Ah accumulator to get result faster).
Unfortunately I do not know ho to automatize this "work around".

Any suggestion?
