Not sure on the ownership part, but what might help is in your config
try /var/run/ddclient/ddclient.pid as you left out the ddclient
sub-folder and that might let it get created?

I guess you could just go to /var/run and do below if that will help..

If there is no .pid file, create one and leave it empty first? then try

chown ddclient.ddclient ddclient.pid
