The two problems are distinct, because leafnode will complain about the
clocks but continue to download news.

1. as to the clocks: ask the operators of news.atnet.at to correct the
time on their server.

2. as to the failing download: what does

ls -l /var/spool/news/interesting.group

tell you? If nothing, you need to read some pseudo articles.

If it prints something, try running fetchnews -vvv to see what's going
on, if that isn't sufficient, check the TROUBLESHOOTING section of the
README file to produce a debug log. The exact path of the README file
can probably be looked up with:

dpkg -L leafnode-1.9.36-2 | grep README
