[fetch creates interesting.groups but does not download files]
The obvious thing I can think of is wrong permissions of /var/spool/news.
They should look like this:
drwxr-sr-x 19 news news 5120 Apr 27 04:44 /var/spool/news/
and you should find new directories below it (like
/var/spool/news/news/software/readers if you read news.software.readers).
These directories are created on-the-fly when fetch runs. Another
possibility is that /var/spool/news/message.id does not exist or does
not contain subdirectories (there should be 1000 of them, called 000 to
999). These should have drwxrwsr-x permissions and be owned by news:news.

It depends. Just switch on the debug mode as detailed in the README file,
and you get more information than you most likely appreciate :-)
