Thanks for reporting.

I looked at the changelog for this package and found that it was removed in 2.7.1-1ubuntu2 with the follwing message:

  * Disable systemd unit; it does not check nut.conf whether nut is
    configured, and thus fails to start (and the package install). The init.d
    script works well enough for the time being. (LP: #1313231)

See also bug 1313231 for more information.

Checking with Debian, it looks like they first included the same change as Ubuntu but then reverted them again. There's a longer discussion in https://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=747863 and it looks like they might have fixed it, but I've only skimmed that one.
