Public bug reported:

Ubuntu 16.04.4 LTS, Nut 2.7.2-4ubuntu1.2

I am following the Network UPS Tools User Manual, section 6. Configuration notes
According to  6.2. Basic configuration, I set up a device stanza in 
        driver = usbhid-ups
        port = auto
        bus = 005

The next step consists in issuing "/sbin/upsdrvctl start" which results in the 
Network UPS Tools - UPS driver controller 2.7.2
Network UPS Tools - Generic HID driver 0.38 (2.7.2)
USB communication driver 0.32
Can't chdir to /var/run/nut: No such file or directory
Driver failed to start (exit status=1)

Creating the directory with permissions 0770 and ownership root:nut does
resolve this issue.

I would expect Nut to create the directory upon installation.
