qemu-guest-agent - dysfunctional package

Installed qemu-guest-agent, but found it disfunctional, at
least, cut&paste from host to guest does not work.
Then I saw, it has not been started - whyever.

/etc/init.d/qemu-guest-agent start
qemu-ga: transport endpoint not found, not starting ... (warning).

Then I saw a newer version in backports and installed this.

  Installed: 1:7.2+dfsg-7+deb12u5
  Candidate: 1:7.2+dfsg-7+deb12u5
  Version table:
     1:8.2.1+ds-1~bpo12+1 100
        100 daedalus-backports/main amd64 Packages
 *** 1:7.2+dfsg-7+deb12u5 500
        500 daedalus/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

But at the end of this setup, the same error appeard:

Setting up qemu-guest-agent (1:8.2.1+ds-1~bpo12+1) ...
qemu-ga: transport endpoint not found, not starting ... (warning).
Processing triggers for man-db (2.11.2-2) ...

And the service says it:

# /etc/init.d/qemu-guest-agent status
qemu-ga is not running ... failed!
