Thanks for this.

Devuan has reverted to Debian's packages for beowulf. Unfortunately they 
don't have an epoch, so it *looks* like a downgrade to apt. However, we 
need to know if this issue is still present with those packages.

The Debian upower versions are 0.99.10-1

 apt install --allow-downgrades upower/beowulf

You might need to manually install the libraries too.
