Did you rename the files that makedbz -i generated?  From INSTALL:

    Next, you need to create an empty history database.  To do this, type:

        cd ~news/db
        touch history
        makedbz -i

    When it finishes, rename the files it created to remove the ".n" in the
    file names and then make sure the file permissions are correct on all
    the files you've just created:

        chmod 644 *

    Your news database files are now ready to go.

Also make sure that you're doing this (and all other news setup steps) as
the news user.
