Something is really mis configured on the server.
When the user tries to change password his password policy needs to be
read from lDAP. Password policy depends on the groups the user is a
member of so effectively the policy is merged from different policies.
That merge is failing because the DS plugin configuration is missing.

Does this happen on all your replicas?
If not and other replicas that you have work correctly, I would suggest
considering re-installation of the current replica. But to make it work,
I suggest you ask JR on #freeipa for exact steps as he has a lot of
expertise on recycling replicas.
