Because likely either the search that FreeRADIUS is doing is the
wrong search for your LDAP schema, or the bind user hasn't got
permission to read the data. Looks like the former.

This is really hard to read, and missing all the startup data.
Please always post the whole debug output in each mail, it makes
it so much easier to help. And just "radiusd -X". No -xx or -XXX
or anything else, unless asked. That should skip the timestamps
out and just include everything that is needed.

Easiest way is to run

  radiusd -X | tee log.txt

send a test packet, then hit Ctrl-C, and attach the log.txt file
to the e-mail. That will hopefully preserve it without line
wrapping and mangling it.

It's good you've now got a fresh up-to-date install, and it should
be clearer to see but we need the whole output.
