That script looks very very weird.  It builds and installs slurm to
/tmp/slurm-build and then builds deb's from that to go into /usr and installs 
them.  If you then clean up /tmp/slurm-build then I suspect things will go 
badly wrong as that's where you've told Slurm to reference with configure.

If you're not going to build deb's with the Debian tools to do so then I would 
suggest just install Slurm to (for example) /usr/local/slurm/${VERSION} and 
have a symlink called /usr/local/slurm/latest that points to the current 
version you want to be running.  Then your systemd files can just reference 

Hope this helps..

All the best,
