Troubleshooting a failing service

For several months, now, I've been using dynamic DNS from https://www.dnsexit.com/ to make my home box visible on the Internet as a subdomain of my own private domain. Everything worked fine until I "upgraded" to F16 and the New! Improved! Shiny! systemd. Now, I get an error message at boot that the service failed and if I run

systemctl status ipUpdate.service

I'm told that it failed with this error: (code=exited, status=203/EXEC). And, if I use nslookup, I get the wrong IP. However, if I run this:


it works Just Fine, and I start getting the right IP. (From what I can tell, running that script is the core of what the service does.) I've emailed their support twice with a request for assistance but received no reply because they only support paying customers and my domain's not hosted there. Does anybody know how to troubleshoot this? If not, I'll probably have to set it up as a cron job, running the script directly but I'd rather not go that route if I don't have to.

Any advice in this post is worth exactly what you paid for it.
