It looks like you have configured some Mailman generated file in Postfix
as virtual_alias_maps that should be transport_maps.

If you installed via mailman-bundler, the suggested Postfix config lines
should be in deployment/postfix-main.cf.

If you still have trouble, post the output of 'postconf -n'.
