gnu.emacs.bug is not an nntp server afaik ... more likely it is a group.

You can sign up for a free nntp server account here:

then add it to your select methods with

| (add-to-list 'gnus-secondary-select-methods
|               '(nntp "motzarella"
|                      (nntp-authinfo-file "~/.authinfo.gpg")
|                        (nntp-address "")
|                      (nntp-port-number 119)
|                      )
|             )
