Section 5.4 says:

               CDUP
                  200
                  500, 501, 502, 421, 530, 550

It should say:

               CDUP
                  250
                  500, 501, 502, 421, 530, 550

Notes:

The reply codes for CDUP are supposed to be identical to those of CWD according to Appendix II - Reply Codes. Thus, the proper return code for a successful CDUP should be 250 - Requested file action okay, not 200 - Command okay.
