this should have uninstalled slurm-wlm also, did you reinstalled it with apt?

if you didn't reinstall slurm with apt you may be using the slurmctld
executable from a failed source installation, and for some reason this
can't find the corresponding plugin directory.

I suggest to try to install the slurm-wlm package with:

apt-get install slurm-wlm

and copy the slurm.conf you posted previously under /etc/slurm-llnl
but remember to set the SlurmUser to slurm

It's not a problem to setup munge authentication with a single machine,
its a problem if you don't have all packages installed and
slurm-wlm-basic-plugins must be installed.
