I can't really help on your original question but have some other

I agree with the others that the failure may be due a wrong port.

Is the directory literally $SYSTEM.DATA or is SYSTEM some environment
variable? AFAIK, ftplib doesn't support "interpolating" of environment

I think, it should be RETR instead of GET? Then, retrlines is not so
similar to file.readlines. :-) From help(ftplib.FTP.retrlines):
Help on method retrlines in module ftplib:
retrlines(self, cmd, callback=None) unbound ftplib.FTP method
Retrieve data in line mode.
The argument is a RETR or LIST command.
The callback function (2nd argument) is called for each line,
with trailing CRLF stripped. This creates a new port for you.
print_line() is the default callback.
