I've got similar problem ("no Message-ID header in..." message while
rebuilding history). 


I had _moved_ my original directories (/var/lib/news /var/spool/news 
/etc/news) to different location, removed inn (apt-get remove --purge \
inn2 inn2-inews), installed inn (apt-get install inn2 inn2-inews), 
touched missing "path" file and finished installation (apt-get install -f).
