To the OP:
Is it a BACKUPS __PRO__ 650 or just a BACKUPS 650? If it's the latter
then the dumb UPSTYPE should be correct. I have two boxes running this
model with apcupsd without issue.
Incidentally, based on your original description it almost sounds like
your battery is dead (or very low charge) which would explain why
apcupsd wants to shutdown immediately. Try running the ups without load
for a few hours to see.
