One of your lists has a bad lists/<listname>/config.pck file. If you
don't know which is the problem list,
/usr/local/mailman/bin/check_db --all --verbose
may help you identify it. Possibly moving the config.pck aside and
replacing it with the config.pck.last file may solve the problem. If
not, perhaps you have a good file somewhere on a system backup. If
not, other tools such as bin/config_list and bin/dumpdb will probably
fail too so *nix 'strings' may be the only way to retrieve useful
information from the file that would help in recreating the list.
