I had the same problem.  I used dpkg --force to install and configure cnews
and inews, and then cycled trough dselect until it stopped bitching.  I
also had to edit the news crontab to take out all the inn stuff that inews
put in.  I still get complaints about the fact that compress is missing and
that there are no uucp files.  Email me if you need help with cnews.  I've
been using it on my two user system for years.
