Low rate of successful files and Error messages in logs

I've tried several usenet providers and am getting very low percentage of successfully downloaded files. I've enabled -declog and can see the following recorded over and over:

IMC: Not found yet
15:32:32: IMC: Incomplete
15:32:33: Parsing Message-Id...Done


When I say low I mean a few percentage points of all files queued are downloaded and displayed in folder.

That's the downloader checking to see if there are enough parts to send to the decoder. For example, you'll see that for each of (1/100) to (99/100). Then when all are available you should see IMC: Complete. If you see "IMC: Complete", look down farther for any errors. Also while you're downloading, look at the Log tab to see if there are any messages displayed like "Article not found".

retrying after delay 430 no such article is what i see in log tab.
However, in search tab I can clearly see that the file is there and has green floppy icon next to it.

Could this be related

That error related to newsgroups shouldn't happen in any recent builds. http://binaryboy.com/patch.php Even though you're seeing the headers for the file, it doesn't necessarily mean that the articles are still there. If you want to confirm that the article doesn't actually exist and you're not afraid of using telnet, you can try to retrieve the article manually like below from cmd.exe.

telnet news.yournewsserver.com 119
AUTHINFO USER yourusername
AUTHINFO PASS yourpassword
GROUP alt.binaries.newsgroupname
ARTICLE 12345 (You can get the number from the log. it will be after the ARTICLE command)

If you get the error even when using telnet, it might mean the file has been removed due to a DMCA complaint. I've noticed usenet providers will often delete the article in response to a complaint but keep it indexed.
