Quoting the fifth comment in

I finally got it to work! The trick is to set mm-url-use-external to t so that emacs uses an external program, by default wget, to fetch the feed, rather than its built-in http support.

I couldn’t have put it better myself (except perhaps to emphasise finally), and without that comment I would still be floundering. Thank you, Matthias.
